Joshua Alburtus

Josh Alburtus started off as a news reporter for the Lanthorn in August of 2021. His dedication to truth and ethics immediately strengthened the organization, providing straightforward coverage of local, state and university politics, holding elected officials accountable and always advocating for impartiality. He would go on to become the News Editor in August of 2022. Naturally, Josh managed his team with excellence, often contributing longer, well-researched pieces while always keeping the success of his staff at the forefront. In the chaotic lead-up to the midterm elections, his passion for highquality journalism was on full display. His election coverage was consistently ahead of mainstream publications, and he landed an interview with Governor Gretchen Whitmer, too. In the office, his bright attitude and laughter were contagious, proving that in addition to being a great reporter, he was a great person, a valued friend and an incredible asset to any team you could put him on. Josh’s contributions to the Lanthorn cannot be overstated.
