Biography

*Have a story idea or just want to say hello? Send me an email at rcherry@tribweb.com.

I am a local news editor with the Tribune-Review and its community newspapers.

With a traditional news sense in mind, I've recognized the importance of new media, focusing on bringing news and other information...

What was your first job as a journalist?

I was a reporter for my elementary school newspaper. One of my first interviews was Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Gary Anderson.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

A what? Oh, I was very young when my parents showed me what a typewriter was. A friend collects typewriters. I'll take an iPad.

How is social media changing news?

News isn't changing (well, sometimes it is dumbed down). How we consume news has changed since the beginning of time.
