Special Projects ReporterEric Lindquist joined the Leader-Telegram news team as a part-time regional reporter while attending UW-Eau Claire in 1982 and, after stints as Homes editor, Business editor and special projects reporter, has been the special projects editor since 1999. Essentially, that means he doesn't have a traditional newspaper beat and thus can -- and does -- write about anything from politics and community issues to demographics and social trends. (Hint: Interesting story ideas are always welcome.)
Always in pursuit of a good story, Eric has won national awards for investigative, enterprise and sports reporting and state awards for investigative, enterprise, spot news, feature, public service, business, environmental and sports reporting.
When he's not working, Eric enjoys traveling, watching high school sports, backing the Packers and playing racquetball, golf and pickleball.
