With the recent opening for managing editor for the Tahoe Daily Tribune and Sierra Sun, the Tribune has hired Laney Griffo to become the new editor for both publications.

Griffo has been a part of the Tahoe Tribune staff since 2019, where she began as a reporter. She quickly became rooted in her position, and was named as the assistant editor in 2022, when the Tahoe Tribune officially acquired the management of the Sierra Sun publication in North Lake Tahoe.

Griffo graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno with dual degrees in journalism and political science; and prior to her time on the Tribune staff, covered the Nevada State Legislature as well as Nevada and Northern California courts.

“I am beyond excited to step into this new role. Since I was a child, I have dreamed of being an Editor of a newspaper and the fact that the newspaper is located in the best place on Earth is more than I could’ve imagined,” Griffo said. “Along with the fantastic teams at the Sierra Sun and Tahoe Daily Tribune, I hope to continue giving a voice to the community and being the trusted news source for life in the Tahoe Basin.”

Along with her new position as managing editor, Griffo is also the editor for the bi-annual magazine publication, Tahoe Magazine.
