Veteran reporter joins Daily News editorial staff

GREENSBURG – A journalist with more than 17 years of experience at Indiana dailies has joined the Greensburg Daily News.

Boris Ladwig, 44, grew up in northern Germany and first got to know Hoosier hospitality as an exchange student in Rush County in the 1980s. After completing high school and military service in Germany, Ladwig returned to Indiana to study at Indiana State University in 1993. He graduated in 1996 with bachelor’s degrees in radio/TV/film and journalism.

Ladwig worked for three years at the Daily Clintonian, in Clinton, where he covered the news in Parke County, including police, education and the Covered Bridge Festival. He moved to Columbus in 1999 to work at The Republic, where he primarily wrote about businesses, with a focus on Fortune 500 engine maker Cummins, Inc.

He enjoys writing investigative and explanatory pieces, such as an award-winning series on the demise of Irwin Union Bank.

While in Columbus, Ladwig developed an interest in and appreciation for architecture, which he employed in an occasional series about the city’s architectural treasures, from Eero Saarinen’s North Christian Church and Miller House to Richard Meier’s Clifty Creek Elementary School.

Ladwig has some familiarity with Greensburg and Decatur County and has completed assignments here related to election coverage and economic news, especially the Honda manufacturing plant.

Ladwig and his wife, Natalie, a Kentucky native whom he met while studying at Indiana State, live in Columbus. He has tutored adults and children in English and coached youth soccer and is a retired amateur soccer player. He also enjoys traveling and singing, and likes to combine his love for soccer and travel by attending matches at FIFA World Cups.
