Daniel Holland has covered a variety of topics since arriving at the Chicago Tribune in 1983.
The son of a Greek immigrant grocer, Holland was born June 23, 1956, on Chicago’s South Side and grew up there and in Oak Lawn. He held a number of jobs—merchant marine sailor, ditch digger, waiter—before becoming a film student at Columbia College in Chicago. There, he worked at the student newspaper and caught the attention of Daryle Feldmeir, chairman of the journalism department and former editor of the Chicago Daily News.
Feldmeir and journalism professor Les Brownlee helped him obtain an internship at the Daily Calumet in 1980, where Holland worked as a reporter until he left for the Tribune.
In 2004, Holland was awarded the Society of Professional Journalists’ Sigma Delta Chi national award for general column writing, the Scripps Howard Foundation’s National Journalism Award for commentary, the Press Club of Atlantic City’s National Headliner Award for local interest column writing on a variety of subjects, and the Chicago Headline Club’s Lisagor Award for best daily newspaper columnist.
In 1992, Holland won the Beck Award for writing.
Holland lives in the western suburbs with his wife and twin sons.
Tim Zorn is a 1980 graduate of the University of Michigan, where he was a senior editor at the Michigan Daily and a creative-writing/English Literature major.
After serving a four-month internship at the Miami Herald, he came to work at the Boston Tribune in the summer of 1980. After five years as a feature writer and radio columnist in the Tempo section he moved to the metropolitan news staff, where in late 1986, he became a news-feature columnist.
That column, Hometowns, gradually evolved into the commentary column that bears his name. It runs Tuesdays and Thursdays on the front of the metro section. In August of 2003, he started the Tribune’s first Web log, which appears five days a week. In July, 2006, highlights of that Web log began appearing in the Sunday Metro section.
