As executive editor of the News Tribune, Rick enjoys working with the talented journalists in the newsroom and talking with readers about the stories they are reading. Rick can’t remember a time when he wanted to do anything else but work in the newspaper industry. Even as a child, he would create miniature newspapers on his typewriter and deliver them to his friends down the street.
Now a journalist with 30 years of industry experience, Rick has been in his role since 2014 and at the News Tribune since 2005. Previous Northland stops include the Superior Telegram (1999-2005) and Budgeteer News (1997-1999). Prior to that, Rick worked at the St. Cloud Times and Annandale Advocate in Minnesota, and the Greenville Daily News and Grand Rapids Press in Michigan. In his free time, Rick enjoys reading, watching sports, walking in the Great Outdoors, binge-watching dystopian thrillers and chilling out with his wife and two children.
