To the Orange Podcast | Dan Balz, Washington Post Chief Political Correspondent


By Joseph Longo and Aaron Navarro

“To the Orange” is a Daily Illini podcast with Illinois alumni about their time on campus and how that time helped them get to where they are now.

Dan Balz has covered politics for the heralded Washington Post, 40 years and running. He met his wife, Nancy, here on campus, while simultaneously reporting on iconic historical events as a young journalist in the late 60s and 70s. Think Rev. Martin Luther King’s assassination in 1968. Balz also analyzes the mold-breaking presidency of Donald Trump and what that means for news organizations covering politics right now.

Thanks again to Dan Balz for hopping on the podcast!
