Sierra Sun reporter Greyson Howard is going to become a reporter for The Union, according to a Facebook post, another example of The Union’s “All in the Family” approach to hiring. Kyle Magin also joined the Union from the Sierra Sun.
Both newspapers are owned by Carson City-based Swift Communications.
Patrick McCartney of Truckee (one of Greyson’s Facebook friends) posted this on The Union’s Facebook page on Friday: “Glad to hear Sierra Sun staff writer Greyson Howard will be covering his hometown, reporting for The Union.”
Howard’s parents own the Emma Nevada House B&B in Nevada City. He graduated from UC Davis in ’05.
Don’t look for any announcement at The Union — just a new byline.
As previously reported, Dave Moller — The Union’s most experienced reporter — recently departed to become Editor of the weekly newspaper in Louisiana, Mo. Missouri is Dave’s home state.
