UW-Green Bay dedicates its new media newsroom | WLUK

GREEN BAY (WLUK) — A space was dedicated Monday at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay’s new media center in honor of Frank Wood.

It’s called the Frank Wood Media Newsroom. The naming donation is for a classroom and media workspace located next to the Arnold Broadcast Studio.

Wood and his family owned Brown County Publishing, the Green Bay News-Chronicle, and other weekly papers in the area. His family continues its tradition in newspapers through his company Multi Media Channels, which owns the Press Times.

“No doubt Frank would be beaming with heartfelt pride and joy if he was here with us in-person today, and say ‘good going, and carry on!’ To which I’d say, ‘we shall!'” Wood’s son Chris said.

Wood also taught at St. Norbert College.

He was inducted into the Wisconsin Newspaper Hall of Fame in 2002. Wood died in 2011 at age 82.
