Tim Broderick has been a news artist with the Daily Herald since 1990, and was named News Presentation Editor/Graphics in 1997.

From his unique perspective, Tim has been a part of the coverage for many important suburban news stories including the Brown's Chicken murders, two trials for Illinois governors, in depth reporting on issues such as heroin in the suburbs, red light cameras, state pensions and continuing coverage on subjects such as school report cards and state budget woes.

In 2008, Tim was honored by the Illinois AP Editors Association along with the reporting team for "The Dream Foreclosed," which reported on the beginnings and affects of the mortgage crisis in Illinois and the suburbs. He also has won a number of Lisagor awards for graphics and design.

As a visual journalist, Tim uses maps, charts, diagrams and illustration to inform readers in ways words alone can't do. In his professional career, he has seen the industry change from using pen-and-ink maps and diagrams in print to telling stories with 3D graphics and animations for multiple platforms. He estimates he's mapped the suburbs in the collar counties at least three times over, which really only gives him another excuse to not stop and ask for directions.

Tim graduated from Eastern Illinois University with a degree in journalism and additional art training. During college, he worked a summer for the Chicago Defender before interning with the Southtown Economist on Chicago's south side. He started as a copy editor/artist at the Southtown in 1984.

Tim has lived in and around Chicago his entire life and currently resides on the northwest side with his wife, twin daughters and one annoying but somehow loveable fluffy-white rescue dog. He also has published two graphic novels, studies Hapkido and is a member of the Mystery Writers of America.
