Changes are afoot as 2014 gets underway and the Los Alamos Daily Post nears its two-year anniversary in business.
Mary Hrbek is joining the Los Alamos Daily Post news team as a copy editor. Her first full-time job after college was as an editorial assistant at the Chicago Tribune.
Hrbek majored in English at the University of Illinois and spent several years working as a freelance editor, proofreader and desktop publisher before her children were born. She moved to Los Alamos in 1998 with her husband George Hrbek and their sons Geordy and Bobby.
“I am delighted to reenter the world of journalism with the Los Alamos Daily Post,” Hrbek said.
Another change at the Los Alamos Daily Post is that webmaster Greg Kendall will be leaving the paper Feb. 2 to pursue other projects. Kendall has been with the paper since its inception in early 2012 and his efforts in setting up the website, writing stories, taking photographs and maintaining the Los Alamos Daily Post’s Facebook page have been greatly appreciated.
Also, as the new year moves forward, readers can expect to see an increase in local feature stories and profiles, investigative pieces, business highlights, and in depth political coverage of Los Alamos candidates as the election season gets underway.
The Los Alamos Daily Post is gearing up for an exciting 2014 and thanks its loyal readers in Los Alamos, across New Mexico, throughout the nation and in 120 countries around the world.
