This week we welcome Patrick Fancher into his new staff position as associate editor. With a B.A. In new media communications (with a minor in writing) from Oregon State University, Fancher brings the kind of media experience to the team that will help us continue to pave the way forward as Corvallis’ alternative news weekly.
“I’m from Corvallis so I’m excited to take part in the coverage of news and happenings in the town that I love and grew up in,” he says. “This is a great opportunity I’ve been given and I’m really looking forward to learn and grow with the team.”
Previously having worked in an editorial position for entertainment media website http://www.getthebigpicture.net, Fancher joins the Advocate news table in his new capacity this week, having previously written for the paper since last October.
Current editor Johnny Beaver will retain his position, with Fancher acting as an expansion to the editorial team. Everyone on staff looks forward to a stronger, more diverse and community-oriented 2014.
