The independent student newspaper at the University of Illinois since 1871

The Daily Illini

Aaron Navarro

Aaron is a junior majoring in broadcast journalism from Lindenhurst, Illinois, though when people ask, he just tells them Six Flags. He started at The Daily Illini fall of his freshman year as a news writer, and he is now the On-air news editor and host of the "Weekly Illini" podcast (on Apple Podcasts, Google Play Music, and SoundCloud). Outside of the newsroom, Aaron is probably doing something with music or scrolling through too much political Twitter.
