Cheryl Chodun is an Adjunct professor here at LTU in the Media Communication program. She says she teaches her students the skills she used everyday as a TV News reporter for WXYZ Channel 7 and before that on WWJ Radio, the all News radio Station here in Detroit. She was on the Radio for six years and at Channel 7 on air for 25 years until she retired in the summer of 2013. Chodun has covered some of the biggest stories in our town and beyond...breaking news on crime and corruption, on bankruptcy and bank robberies...you name it she says, she's covered it! Chodun has won many awards for her reporting including 2 Emmys. In 2014, she was inducted into the Michigan Journalism Hall of Fame. Chodun says she is incredibly proud of that. Chodun says she believes being a good communicator is not only a journalism skill, but a life skill and will hopefully help her students wherever their journey takes them. She says she loves teaching....and most of all loves seeing her students succeed.
Chodun is married and has a son and daughter and three grandchildren.
She is a graduate of Wayne State University.
