The Williston Observer has named Stephanie Choate as its new editor.
Choate has been with the paper as associate editor since April. She worked as a reporter for the Williston Observer and The Charlotte Citizen, a weekly paper previously owned by the same company that owns the Observer, from 2009-2011. She spent the last year and a half traveling in Japan, Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand, doing some freelance writing along the way.
Prior to working with Williston Publishing, Choate spent a year at the Patriot Ledger, a daily newspaper outside of Boston. She graduated from the journalism program at Northeastern University after completing several long-term internships at news organizations in California, Vancouver, B.C. and the Boston area.
