Company President, Joe Petshow, announced a recent move as a win-win for Eagle Newspapers. Eagle continues its tradition of offering long-time, loyal employees a chance to lead its properties, as Editor, Michelle Te, was introduced as the new point person at Northwest Boomer and Senior News. She replaces Patty Gilbert, who is staying within the company and has returned to her former sales position at Eagle Web Press.

Michelle shared, "Now, I'm both general manager and editor, and I'm excited about the opportunity to lead our publication through these challenging times in the news business. I feel that we offer a valuable product that can grow and develop to meet the needs of our readers."
