The Flint Courier News is pleased to officially announce it has hired a team member new to the Flint Courier News staff but not new to the field of journalism. Tanya Terry has been hired as the newspaper’s editor and staff writer. Flint may not know her, but she knows Flint.
In her grant funded position, Terry is thrilled to be able to bring in-depth stories to our city about our city. As a long time reader of the Flint Courier News, Terry shares the commitment of the Flint Courier News to create factual articles about the issues, events and people affecting those in Flint and Genesee County the most.
A hardworking and passionate writer, Terry is a 2007 graduate of Wayne State University’s School of Journalism. She has written professionally for newspapers, magazines, podcasts and websites for many years.
Although Terry was born in Columbus, Ohio…she has lived in Flint most of her life. Terry is looking forward to providing this community with up-to-date headline news, health and wellness articles, church news, education news, arts and culture reporting, business news, other local news, news on technology, as well as political/national and world news of interest to the over 35,000 Flint Courier News readers who have come to appreciate the publication.
“I appreciate the work of Sheri L. Stuart; former community journalist for the Flint Courier News, as well as that of the rest of the Flint Courier News staff. Since Ms. Stuart has been named news director for WBKB in Alpena, Michigan, she will be greatly missed. I know I have big shoes to fill, and I aspire to make as much of a positive impact on the Flint Courier News as she has made,” Terry said.
