THE HUB: New editor at the Williston Observer

Stephanie Choate

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.
