Matthew Walberg is an investigative reporter for the Chicago Tribune, specializing in criminal justice and a wide range of  governmental shenanigans. He covered the Cook County Criminal Courts beat for the Tribune for several years, and also worked as a legman for Trib columnist John Kass. Walberg got his start in journalism at City News Bureau of Chicago, where he was frequently and vigorously chewed out by the people he covered and his editors. It was a lot of fun. Walberg wishes he had more time to spend hiking, mountain biking and traveling.
