Chicago and the DePaul community continue to pay tribune to Carlos Hernandez Gomez, a former student at DePaul and a respected political reporter who lost his battle with cancer at age 36 earlier this year. The Carlos Hernandez Award in Journalism was recently mentioned in a segment with Carlos’ widow, Randi, on WTTW- 11’s Chicago Tonight last Tuesday night. You can see the video on the WTTW Chicago Tonight website.
