Melissa Isaacson has been a fixture on the Chicago sports media landscape for more than 30 years. An award-winning sports writer and author currently on the faculty of Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism, her most recent book “State: A Team, a Triumph, a Transformation,” was featured in the New York Times and L.A.

Isaacson was the Chicago Tribune’s first woman general sports columnist and the first woman principal beat writer to cover the Bulls and Bears, most notably the Michael Jordan–led Bulls over their six NBA titles. Among other publications, she has been on the staffs of the Orlando Sentinel, USA Today and ESPN.com, covering every major U.S. sports championship, Grand Slam tennis tournaments and the Summer and Winter Olympic Games. The author of three books, including “Transition Game: An Inside Look at Life with the Chicago Bulls” and “Sweet Lou: Lou Piniella, A Life in Baseball,” her latest “State” chronicles Title IX’s first-generation and the tale of her Niles West High School team’s 1979 Illinois girls basketball state championship.
