After a couple of great years covering polygamy in Utah, I’ve accepted a new beat covering higher education for The Tribune.

Though I’m looking forward to the new beat (Controversy over the Dixie State name and ESL program plagiarism anyone?) I’m going to really miss covering polygamy in Utah.

Taking over for me is Jim Dalrymple II, who joined us from the Provo Herald, assisted by editor Nate Carlisle, who’s been involved with the beat for years.

You will also start seeing blog posts from photographer Trent Nelson, who has been snapping photos of all things polygamy for eight years.
