I’d like to introduce you to Tribune reporters who have started in the last couple of months. Please find them with your ideas and questions.
Kim Bojorquez, statewatch reporter: Kim joined our state government reporting team in December. A native Utahn, she previously worked for The Sacramento Bee in its capital bureau, as a Report for America corps member, and also for the Deseret News. She’s a UVU grad who is diving in as we get liftoff on the 2022 legislative session. Find her at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter @kimbojorque
Palak Jayswal, culture reporter: A former digital news producer at KUER and University of Utah graduate, Palak has previously written about music and culture for local and national titles. This is a revisioned role, and in it Palak will help elevate the experiences of those who have not consistently appeared in The Tribune. Find her at email@example.com or on Twitter @palak_jayswal
Jordan Miller, breaking news reporter: Jordan interned for us in 2021, joining us after stints as a freelance reporter for the Houston Chronicle and, while in college, as editor-in-chief of the Oklahoma University Daily, where she oversaw a team of 50-plus journalists. Find her at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter @jordanmillerr
Kevin Reynolds, BYU sports reporter: A Texan with New Jersey roots, Kevin joins us after covering Southern Methodist University, which like BYU is a private, religiously-affiliated university with a strong sports tradition. Find him at email@example.com or on Twitter @kevinreynolds30
Stefene Russell, Utah eats reporter: A University of Utah graduate who most recently worked as a journalist in St. Louis, Stefene is an experienced reporter. She’s eager to return to a state that is rapidly changing, and to help elevate those stories that explain how we eat is also changing. Find her at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter @voltarine
Connor Sanders, K-12 education: Connor interned at The Tribune twice, once as a breaking reporter and once as a member of our state government team. He is a graduate of SUU and Copper Hills High, and he will help us tell stories that can lead to the best possible learning environments for Utah students. Find him at email@example.com or on Twitter @connorssanders
Longtime reporter Sean P. Means has been promoted and will lead our newly-formed culture and food team, working closely with Stefene and Palak as their editor. You can still find him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your support of The Tribune. You are the reason we’re able to welcome more journalists to our team and to fill open positions.
