MADISON – When the fight over Gov. Scott Walker’s budget repair proposal on collective bargaining erupted, the state’s Capitol reporters found themselves in the middle of a national firestorm.

“In my 14 years as editor of the Journal Sentinel, there has been nothing close to the reaction to this ongoing story,” Marty Kaiser has written about overseeing coverage of the massive protests.

Kaiser, editor of the state’s largest newspaper, will speak at 12:15 p.m. on Tuesday, April 26, in the Nafziger Conference Room, 5055 Vilas Hall, 821 University Ave.

The public is welcome to attend.
