LOCAL NEWS AFICIONADOS WANTED EVERYBODY TO SEE THIS ONE . . . CHECK THE MEMO INTERCEPTED BY THE FINEST TKC READERS
I'm sorry to announce that June 6 will be Christine Vendel's last day at The Star. She's heading to Pennsylvania where she and her kids will rejoin her husband, Casey, who moved a few months ago to start a new job. Christine has landed a news reporting position in the Harrisburg area, and I'll leave it to her to share the details once she's able.
An intrepid police reporter, Christine's work has bolstered The Star for 21 years. Her accomplishments include an impressive record of breaking news scoops, touching victim profiles and hard-hitting investigative projects (last year's medical examiner project is just the latest example). Her legacy here is the enterprise stories she's been able to tell even as she was first with news day in and day out. Being a watchdog has been a priority for Christine, and it has been a tremendous service to our readers.
Please join us in wishing Christine and her family all the best in the Keystone State.
We'll be working to fill the KC police job as quickly as possible. Strong skills in breaking news, source development and watchdog/enterprise reporting will be essential. If you're interested, please contact me by Wednesday, June 4.
