Haugh joins Rick Morrissey as a writer of the famed column.
In a note to readers, Mike Kellams, associate managing editor/sports, noted that Haugh is just the 17th journalist to write the column.
"The names are among Chicago's great journalists: Ring Lardner. Arch Ward. David Condon. (Bob) Verdi. Bernie Lincicome. Mike Downey. And Rick Morrissey," Kellams wrote.
"In his time at the Tribune, Haugh has established himself as the must-read on the Bears," Kellams added. "He has authored fantastic profiles of sports figures ranging from Mr. Cub, Ernie Banks, to baseball's all-time home run hitter, Japan's Sadaharu Oh. He is an extraordinary reporter with a nearly unmatched ability for digging up the most far flung of sources. And he is a talented writer with the trait every columnist worth their salt possesses: Even if you don't agree, you can't stop reading.?
By: E&P Staff The Chicago Tribune Thursday named David Haugh as the newest writer of "In the Wake of the News," the sports column once written by Ring Lardner.
