Wednesday Journal deserves the award. Congratulations. I also subscribe to a Pioneer Press publication, Oak Brook Doings. The Pioneer Press publication barely covers the local news. So even when the Wednesday Journal is a week to 10 days late arriving, or recently a full month, it is still worth reading. Thanks for an outstanding effort.

This award is well deserved. The Journal is an excellent weekly newspaper, one that serves the community well in both its news and editorial roles. Congratulations!

Congratulations on the Illinois Press Association award! As a “from day one” reader and subscriber, I’m  so proud of “my” wonderfully quirky yet super-professional local newspaper. Viva Wednesday Journal!

Lauretta Christensen


Congratulations on a well-deserved award. I appreciate both the weekly paper and online updates. Might your next expansion be a metro area daily to rival tanking Trib?

Carrie Hageman


Congrats! Journal team, you really deserve the award and recognition for your fine work.

Congrats to a great newspaper, but better yet, a great group of people who make it all happen.
Oak Park is lucky to have such an award-winning news publication.

Congratulations, Dan and the entire WJ team! Now make sure you get plenty of napkins at that drive-thru!
