Tribune names new City Editor

by Sally J. Taylor

The Tahoe Daily Tribune recently welcomed a new city editor to its newsroom.

Lisa Donahue will supervise the Tribune reporters. She is in charge of assigning stories and photos and working with the community to determine what issues need to be addressed.

“I’m looking forward to meeting the community leaders and knowing the issues special to the Tahoe area,” Donahue said.

Donahue earned a bachelor of arts degree in communications in 1993 from the University of California, San Diego.

Of her decision to go into journalism, she said, “I always liked to know what’s going on with everything. I’m interested many different issues. The best way to (know what’s going on) is to get into journalism.”

She began her career at the San Diego Community Newspaper Group and worked her way up the ranks.

Before coming to the Tribune, she was the senior editor for the newspaper group, which includes four weekly community papers that cover news from La Jolla to Point Lomo, Calif.

After supervising reporters covering everything from sports to features, Donahue said she’s happy to focus on just one aspect of community coverage, the local news.

A native of the Bay Area, Donahue is familiar with Lake Tahoe from a visitor’s point of view and is looking forward to getting to know the community as a resident.

“Everyone is really friendly,” she said. “The staff is great, they’re enthusiastic about their jobs. It makes it really nice working here.”
