The Missourian hires Cruz to cover business
Elena K. Cruz is a new reporter covering business at The Missourian.
A story on its website states, “A 2020 graduate of the University of Missouri-Columbia, Cruz majored in journalism and minored in economics and visual arts. She said she enjoys working in the space where art and math intersect, so she has made reporting her career.
“Before joining The Missourian, Cruz was the managing editor of the University of Missouri School of Journalism’s Vox Magazine, after being promoted from City Life department editor and working as a contributing writer. She also worked as a freelance writer for the Columbia Daily Tribune, as well as an education reporter for the School of Journalism’s Columbia Missourian daily newspaper.
“Cruz has had internships with ViewFind, an online publication sharing international stories to a global audience, and London-based Women in Art, which championed women within the creative field. She worked as a writer and social media editor for the Maneater and radio reporter for KCOU News, both MU campus media outlets.”
