The year 2020 will go down in the books as unforgettable for pretty much everyone in the world, including the Urban Milwaukee team. In the past few months our team has stayed up late and awoken early to cover:

All reported while attempting to keep ourselves and family safe from the coronavirus pandemic still affecting the city. Needless to say things have not been “business as usual” and that was true even before we lost our office facilities and went totally virtual, for now at least. It is because of the unbelievable support from the community — it’s truly been inspiring — that we have able to continue to cover the news of the day.
