Columbian hires business editor, business reporter
The Columbian newspaper in Vancouver, Washington, has hired a business editor and a business reporter, writes editor Craig Brown.
Brown writes, “Our new business editor starts Monday. He’s Allan Brettman, a veteran journalist whom I’ve know casually for 30 years. I first worked with Allan in the late 1980s at The Daily News in Longview. After a few months, I landed a full-time job in Portland, and Allan later went to work at The Oregonian, where he was in the Clark County bureau for seven years. I briefly worked with him there, too, before coming back to The Columbian and competing against him. After moving to the main office, he covered a little shoe and apparel company called Nike.
“Joining him on Sept. 20 is Anthony Macuk. Anthony comes to us from the Lake Oswego Review, where he was a reporter and then assistant editor. If you work on a weekly newspaper like the Review, you cover business news, city government news, breaking news and every other kind of news, generally all at the same time. No wonder he said he wants to explore topics in greater depth, and sharpen his skills at using data to tell stories. He’ll get his chance here.”
