Previously, he spent nearly two decades as a print and broadcast journalist. Lanosga serves on the boards of several non-profit organizations – the Midwest Center for Investigative Reporting, the Indiana Coalition for Open Government and the Indiana Debate Commission, as well as the Media School’s Michael I. Arnolt Center for Investigative Journalism. He is married and has three sons.
