- Riley Donahue: Our 2016 summer graphics intern has pursued a high-profile career at NBCUniversal in New York, where he is the digital design lead at “Saturday Night Live” and “Late Night with Seth Meyers.” I am not surprised, as our news editor, Merridee Hanson, who is one of the most talented people I have ever worked with, said he is one of the most talented people she has ever worked with. I also see that he manages their design interns, so he is helping a future generation.
- Stefanie Donahue Valentino: Riley’s older sister was a metro news intern for us in 2013. After graduating from Western Washington University, she went on to several media and media relations jobs, and now works as a public relations specialist at PeaceHealth headquarters in Vancouver.
- Andy Bao: Our 2017 Clark College photo intern went on to earn his degree at UCLA and complete a number of high-profile assignments. He is now working for The Associated Press in New York City.
- Zach Wilkinson: A 2019 photo intern, Zach is a staff photographer for the Lewiston (Idaho) Morning Tribune.
- Anna Marum: Anna interned with us back in 2012, then went on to work as a reporter at The Oregonian for five years. She’s the marketing and communications manager for Greater Portland Inc., an economic development organization.
- Ben and Will Campbell: Last but not least, the Campbell brothers interned for us back in 2007. Ben was a summer photography intern and Will’s first internship, as I recall, was as a video intern when he was still in his early teens. Now, of course, Ben is publisher of The Columbian and Will is our innovation editor.
Thanks to Web Editor Amy Libby for this column idea.
It’s old news by now, but that damaged cylinder on one of press units has been repaired and reinstalled, which allowed us to restore full color to all of the pages in our print edition beginning Aug. 25. The enormous cylinder was damaged on Aug. 7 when a bolt came loose and damaged the cylinder’s surface. Many thanks to our readers for their patience, and to Production Director Cris Matta and his crew for working through the problem and getting it repaired ahead of schedule.
