If you’re looking for Loyola staff member and PHOENIX adviser Ralph Braseth, you might not find him in his office. Instead, look near the intersection of Michigan Avenue and Pearson Street. Braseth has spent every afternoon since Jan. 29 standing on the busy street corner holding a homemade cardboard sign that reads, “Muslims welcome. This land is your land.”

Grace Runkel is the former editor-in-chief of The PHOENIX. She’s from Floyds Knobs, Indiana, a small town just north of Louisville, Kentucky. There she’s interned with multiple news outlets, as well as at WGN in Chicago. One of her favorite journalism memories is getting to interview Lee Crooks — the voice of the CTA.

Sports Editor

Originally from Lincoln, Nebraska, Madeline Kenney is a huge Cornhusker fan. Kenney is currently pursuing a degree in broadcast journalism and minoring in marketing and sports management. She has a spectacular vernacular, and that’s why she’s the sports editor of The PHOENIX.
