After nearly five years at the Reporter, Angela Caputo has joined the suburban investigative team at the Chicago Tribune. Angela’s dogged and award-winning reporting on public housing and criminal justice set the standard for coverage of those issues in the city and kept the spotlight on two critical public agencies: the Chicago Housing Authority and the Cook County Jail.

In October, the Reporter welcomed reporters Adeshina Emmanuel and Jonah Newman. Adeshina, known as Ade, was a reporter at DNAinfo where he covered the Uptown and Andersonville neighborhoods. Jonah was a database reporter at The Chronicle of Higher Education in Washington, D.C. Visit the staff page at to learn more about Ade and Jonah.
