We’ve added a lot of new names to the masthhead over the past few months, so I thought I’d run down the current roster for you. These folks would love to hear about story ideas. The email address for any of them is [first name][dot][last name]@peoplenewspapers.com.
Chuck Cox has been our sports editor longer than I’ve been the managing editor. Y’all know him. But I feel like not enough of you are subscribers to his email newsletter, The Plaid Report. Today’s edition includes news about the following Highland Park High School teams (deep breath): boys basketball, girls basketball, boys soccer, girls soccer, boys gymnastics, girls gymnastics, boys swimming, girls swimming, baseball, softball, boys golf, girls golf, wrestling, and hockey.
Georgia Fisher is also probably a familar name. She was the first person I hired, just about four years ago. These days, she’s on the education beat. Appropriately enough, she coordinates our periodic Education section.
Karley Osborn is a jill of all trades who writes our People Watching column. That makes her a natural to captain our special sections focusing on the Cattle Baron’s Ball, the Crystal Charity Ball, debutante balls, etc.
Michelle Saunders is our assistant editor. She compiles our police blotters, coordinates content submitted by readers and publicists, and also spearheads our Society Weddings magazine.
Caitlin Adams writes about business. Because we’re a neighborhood newspaper, she focuses on retail, restaurants, and residential real estate. That puts her at the helm of our Real Estate Quarterly and Homes & Design sections.
Sarah Bennett, our newest hire, covers government. We’ve yet to come up with an idea for a special section regarding that beat, so we’ve put Camps and the new Pet People on her plate.
