Michael Miner 

Bio:
Michael Miner has been a Chicago journalist since 1970. After eight years as a Sun-Times reporter and several months traveling in Europe, he joined the Reader as a writer and editor in 1979, yet his connection with this paper goes back to 1971, when he contributed an article to its first issue. At the Reader, Miner has won three Lisagor Awards from the Chicago Headline Club for his media criticism. One column close to his heart, though appropriately unrewarded, reflected on the nature of column writing and concluded that admiring readers are the scourge of the upright pundit. Another noteworthy article was a personal history of the Reader written for last October's 40th anniversary issue.
