The York Daily Record Editorial Board is pleased to welcome three new members:
– George Sepic, vice president of audience.
– Abigail Geiger, breaking news web producer.
– Thorne McFarlane, news assistant.
These new members join Publisher Sara Glines, Editor Jim McClure and Editorial Page Editor Scott Fisher (me) on the team that determines editorial positions for the Daily Record/Sunday News’ and ydr.com’s opinion pages.
The board meets periodically to discuss positions for editorials – the YDR’s opinion on issues of the day – and board members review these editorials prior to publication.
Editorial board members also meet with community leaders. Those meetings are typically livestreamed and are often open to readers. In addition, board members will engage in the candidate endorsement process and will help us set a proactive community agenda.
I’m looking forward to working closely with these three new board members.
But I will also miss the two members who have cycled off the board: Assistant Sports Editor Jessica Sprenkle and Graphic Artist Samantha Dellinger.
They have brought so many great, innovative ideas to the table over the years.
Thanks, Sam and Jess!
