Inlander adds new commentators

Posted By on Mon, Mar 3, 2014 at 11:45 AM

Smart. Provocative. Engaged. That's what we wanted in a new group of commentators for the Inlander and, and that, I'm proud to announce, is what we've found.

These writers will blog here every week and rotate once a month in the paper. (Alongside their columns will appear illustrations by local artist Caleb Walsh.) We'll still feature the opinions of Robert Herold, George Nethercutt and Mary Lou Reed, but we're excited to welcome these bright new voices to the mix.

They come from very different backgrounds and bring to the discussion a wealth of real world experience:

Check back with this week as these contributors jump in the fray. If nothing else, it should be interesting.

Jacob Fries is the editor of the Inlander.
