Aiming for Ames, Iowa

I soon will be moving to Ames, Iowa. My company, Stephens Media, has promoted me to publisher of the Ames Tribune and five affiliated weekly newspapers. Check out the story published in the Las Vegas Review-Journal here.

I’m very excited about this opportunity. It’s the logical next step in my journalism career, I think. Moving the family 1,500 miles will not be easy, but it seems that everybody is intent on focusing on the positives and not dwelling on the potential hardships.

Ames is a fine small city. It’s the home of Iowa State University, and it’s about 30 miles north of Des Moines. The Ames Tribune is a good small daily. It won a Pulitzer Prize when it was run by Michael Gartner. I start April 4.

    Hey Geoff, this is Mike Schaefer, in Baltimore Md(and have condo in LV too), still enjoying your book Sun Sin Suburbia.
    Think one of your photos shows our friend MYRAN BORDERS interviewing the late Hank Greenspun, if that was her, am sure you would have given her a touch of immortality by mentioning her name. That was in the 70s I think. I came in 73.

    Wishing you well in Iowa, hope you get caught up in all the presidential campaigning there. regards
