M.L. Schultze came to WKSU in July 2007 after 25 years at The Repository, where she was managing editor since 1998.
There, she covered schools, city government, crime, courts, politics and special projects. Her work included an examination of mismanagement of the local Head Start operation and public construction projects, and sweetheart contracts awarded to consulting firms that contributed heavily to local political campaigns.
Since coming to WKSU, she's enjoyed working with a crew of talented and motivated reporters on just about every kind of story, from the bocce ball competition to the national political conventions to the impact of the foreclosure crisis.
The WKSU newsroom was named the best in the state by the Society of Professional Journalists this year, and has won numerous other awards for reporting, anchoring and features.
A native of the Philadelphia, Pa., area, Schultze graduated from Syracuse University with a degree in magazine journalism and political science in 1978. Her first jobs after graduation were with the Stark County Mental Health Board and in radio in Stark County. Schultze lives in Canton with her husband, Rick Senften, a Kent State journalism instructor and retired special projects editor at The Rep., and son, Christopher. Their daughter, Gwen,works in Washington, D.C.
