The following excerpt announcement was sent out by The Sheboygan Press:
Brandon Reid, a veteran journalist who has led the Manitowoc Herald Times Reporter since 2015, will take on the additional role of editor of The Sheboygan Press on Monday.

Before that, he reported on a range of topics, from city government to public lands and college sports, at The Salt Lake Tribune.
In addition to his role as editor of the HTR, Reid has served as a content coach for watchdog reporters at Gannett Wisconsin newspapers, including reporters in Sheboygan, and served as interim editor of The Sheboygan Press.
