LIFE@OSU will have a new editor in 2009, and the faculty/staff news letter will not publish during the week of Dec. 22.
Theresa Hogue, who has been a reporter for the Corvallis Gazette-Times for the past eight years, covered campus news at Oregon State as well as health care and entertainment beats.
She has been a member of the OSU College of Education’s Grassroots Learning Project, through which she’s taught numerous seminars on podcasting. Prior to the GT, Hogue worked for three years for the Forest Grove News-Times.
Hogue also will be responsible for other internal communications, including the daily OSU Today electronic news synopsis.
“Theresa’s journalism background and work with new media will serve our faculty and staff well as she provides leadership in the area of internal communications,” said Todd Simmons, assistant vice president of News and Communication Services. “We’re delighted to have her as part of our team.”
Ed Curtin, who stepped in as interim internal communications coordinator and edited LIFE@OSU from its beginning in September, is off to edit the biography of a noted civil rights activist written by a former professor in OSU’s College of Education.
“Ed has done outstanding work on LIFE@OSU under very challenging circumstances,” Simmons said. He will work with Hogue during the transition.
Because of the inactivity on campus during Christmas week, Simmons said, LIFE@OSU will skip an issue. Today’s will be the last until Jan. 8, he said.
