Tribune names interim editor
August 21, 2008
Peter Kostes has been named interim editor of the Tahoe Daily Tribune.
Kostes, regional editor for Sierra Nevada Media Group, has served in various editorial and management roles during his 18 years with Sierra Nevada Media.
Tribune Editor Paul Dunn will leave the paper this month to join his wife back in North Carolina and to pursue other career opportunities.
“All of us at the Tahoe Daily Tribune enjoyed Paul’s involvement with the paper. We thank him for his hard work and wish him well,” said Tribune Publisher Gail Powell-Acosta.
“Peter’s familiarity with the Tribune staff and Tahoe area will be an asset during this transition period,” Powell-Acosta said.
Sierra Nevada Media Group consists of seven newspapers and associated Web sites in Truckee, Tahoe City, South Lake Tahoe, Incline Village, Gardnerville, Carson City and Fallon. Sierra Nevada Media, part of Reno-based Swift Communications, also operates Tahoe.com and Reno.com.
