Lindenberger Joins the The Dallas Morning News' Washington Bureau

Editors at The Dallas Morning News have announced the addition of Michael Lindenberger (Class of 2006) as a financial correspondent to the newspaper's Washington Bureau, beginning this summer. Michael worked at The Courier-Journal while a U of L law student and is a former editor-in-chief of the Louisville Cardinal. From a memo sent to the newspaper staff last week: 

We are pleased to announce that Michael Lindenberger will join the Washington bureau as our new government and business reporter. Michael is a stellar reporter who has covered transportation for The Dallas Morning Newssince 2007. He’ll start after wrapping up a Knight Journalism Fellowship at Stanford University in June.

Trained as an attorney, Michael has put his formidable analytical skills to use exposing waste and management lapses at TxDOT, NTTA and DART. His coverage of lax ethics at the tollway authority prompted sweeping changes, and earned a Philbin Award from the Dallas Bar Association and a Pulitzer nomination from the DMN. After an initial two-year stint at The News, he covered state affairs for The Courier-Journal in his native Kentucky for four years before returning in 2007.

His new beat will be challenging: tracking influence, exploring the intersection of government and Texas business interests in Congress, within regulatory agencies, in the tax code and across the legal system. More generally, he’ll explain how federal decisions affect Texans’ lives and fortunes. Please join us in wishing him well.
