New leadership means new contact information

By Carrie Snyder

The end of 2013 also means an end of a great era as Publisher / General Manager / Editor Karen Huber retired this past Friday. During the new leadership transition period I am excited to announce I will be acting as the interim assistant editor of the West Fargo Pioneer / News.

My career started with the Pioneer back in 2007 when Karen hired me almost straight out of college as the photo editor. I enjoyed my time shooting the Packer sporting events, spending time in the elementary schools, covering numerous events along Sheyenne Street and driving around the town to see what the community had to document. I’ve spent the last few years as a photographer for The Forum most days of the week, but also laying out the Pioneer / News for publication every week, working alongside Karen and Daniel Determan.

For people looking to contact the newspaper about news tips, opinions or advertising, the following phone numbers and email addresses are available.
