Democrat-Gazette names Hoge managing editor
Alyson Hoge has been appointed managing editor of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette in Little Rock. The 43-year news veteran has supervised reporting from the paper’s Washington and state Capitol bureaus as deputy managing editor of news since 2015.
She begins her new role on Feb. 28.
Hoge has worked for the Democrat-Gazette since 1979. She has held various roles, including night city editor and state editor. She has also supervised the design and copy desks.
Lynn Hamilton, president and general manager of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Inc., said:
“I am so happy for Alyson and for the Democrat-Gazette. Alyson personifies what this newspaper is and what our newsroom is capable of doing. Alyson came to us when she was 20 years old. At that time we were hiring a lot of young people — dozens, actually — with little experience. She has held a number of jobs through the years and has excelled in everything she has done. She’s incredibly bright, she’s aggressive at finding news.”
