Ms. Krishnamurthy joined the Daily Herald in 2000, covering the north, northwest and western Chicago suburbs. She chairs the Editorial Diversity Committee, broadening employee understanding of the various cultures within the Daily Herald Media Group.

Madhu is past president of the Chicago Headline Club, the largest chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists; a current board member of the Northern Illinois News Association; and an adjunct faculty member at Columbia College Chicago. She has been awarded the prestigious Peter Lisagor Award several times from the Chicago Headline Club.
