MILWAUKEE BUCKS DEDICATE MEDIA ROOM

The Milwaukee Bucks dedicated the Fiserv Forum’s new media room in honor of Don Walker on Oct. 12, 2018.

Walker was aggressively covering the development of the $524 million arena at the time of his death in May 2015. The arena opened in August 2018.

Bucks President Peter Feigin saluted Walker’s professionalism and fairness during the ceremony, according to a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report.

“We owe Don and his family a debt of gratitude that can never be expressed,” Feigin said.

Walker’s family, friends and fellow journalists attended the event, as well. The media room includes a memorial to Don and his work with The Milwaukee Journal and Journal Sentinel.
