Never a Slow Day
Frank Aukofer was a newspaper reporter in the historic second half of the 20th century, a golden age for American newspapers. Before the Internet, cable television and the 24-hour news cycle, it was the news correspondents who were the source of information for everyone, including the other media.
Aukofer covered many of the historic events of the latter 20th century, including the civil rights movement in the 1960s, the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., the Persian Gulf War, and the impeachment proceedings against Presidents Richard M. Nixon and William J. Clinton, as well as other significant episodes of the time.
Aukofer is the retired Washington bureau chief of The Milwaukee Journal and its successor, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
