'Chicago Tribune' Names New 'Wake of News' Sports Columnist

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.

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.?
