Carrie McDermott, managing editor at the Wahpeton Daily News, has been hired to be editor of the Prairie Business magazine.
Sydney Mook of the Grand Forks Herald writes, “‘I am excited to join the team at Prairie Business,’ McDermott said. ‘Prairie Business is a well-respected publication. I look forward to sharing the stories of the region’s economic drivers and digging into industry trends to present to our readers in an informative and interesting way.’
“Korrie Wenzel, publisher of Prairie Business and the Grand Forks Herald, said McDermott’s skill set is a perfect fit for the magazine. The magazine is based in Grand Forks and shares staff with the Herald.
“‘She’s been a reporter and now she’s an editor of a North Dakota newspaper. She also has experience in producing magazines. All of that combines to make a heck of an editor for our magazine, and we’re excited about it,’ Wenzel said. ‘Above it all, though, she seems interested in telling stories about good people in the region. And that, really, is what Prairie Business is all about.'”
