Schleicher joins Democrat news team

July 30, 2012

The Democrat welcomed a new business reporter last week.

Elizabeth Schleicher will focus on business and local economy stories, as well as design and copy edit pages. She graduated in 2010 from the University of Missouri-Columbia with a degree in magazine journalism and a minor in Spanish. Originally from west-central Illinois, Schleicher spent the last two years working in Billings, Mont., with AmeriCorps and United Way on an income tax assistance program.

“Liz was clearly the best candidate for this job, and we’re happy to have her on board,” said Democrat Editor Bob Satnan. “Readers can look forward to more and better coverage of our local business community.”

Schleicher can be reached at 826-1000 ext. 217 or
