Jim Madigan fund aiming to support multimedia journalism

Hampden County

Springfield’s public television station has created a fund to support local journalism and to honor longtime newsman, Jim Madigan.

In announcing the Jim Madigan Fund, WGBY said they wanted to honor Madigan’s legacy of integrity and responsible journalism.

They’re hoping to raise $50,000 to support multimedia journalism and the education of tomorrow’s local journalists.

Jim passed away last May, after 27 years of hosting public affairs programs at WGBY and moderating countless political debates and forums in western Massachusetts.
