Son of Wilkes-Barre goes on to fame in media and academia

There should be a Northeastern Pennsylvania Journalism Hall of Fame for people who got out. Former Scranton Times reporter Jane Jacobs could be one. Sanford Ungar would be another. The W-B native has worked as a reporter and book author and host of National Public Radio's All Things Considered before taking over a small college in Baltimore. Today's Sun has a lengthy profile of the guy.

Can I nominate Dave Palfrey?

Ungar recently had a facinating piece in the NYT Sunday Magazine. Well worth reading.
