Shoberg takes reins as Pioneer sports editor

Tyler Shoberg is taking over as head of the Pioneer sports department.

A Corcoran, Minn., native and 2006 graduate from the University of North Dakota, Shoberg recently married Erin Dixon on Aug. 22. At the time living in Grand Forks, N.D., the couple moved in early September to Fargo after Erin took a job at MeritCare, working as a nurse in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

Shoberg brings nearly four years of experience to the Pioneer as a sports copy editor, writer and designer at the Grand Forks Herald.

An avid (his wife calls it "obsessive") hunter and fisherman, Shoberg also will be writing an outdoors column every other week, as well as covering the West Fargo School District.
