Northeast News welcomes new writing staff, still seeking managing editor

Bryan Stalder
Northeast News

Abby Cambiano is joining the Northeast News staff through the month of October. Many of our readers may recognize her name; Cambiano was an intern on our staff during the summer of 2017, and helped produce our award winning Back To School issue before graduating from K-State. She will be writing for Northeast News while we continue our search to fill the Managing Editor position permanently and plans to move to New York after her wedding in November.

Additionally, two more interns have joined our staff this fall.

Johanna Pounds, who is a senior at University of Missouri – Kansas City, is majoring in both Journalism and Literature.
“I have always been interested in reading and writing.” Pounds says. “In fact, the other day I found a notebook from seventh grade that had a story I had written in it. Journalism is important because I consider it the fourth branch of the government.”

Pounds also tells us “The most important thing when it comes to journalism, for me, is honesty. It is about giving information to the public in the most unbiased way possible. This way, no matter what information the top officials may be giving us, the general public is only receiving the facts. Then, they can make decisions on their own, without any interference from biased sources, based solely on the truth.”

Reese Bentzinger is a junior at UMKC, with a journalism major and a history minor.

“I decided to major in journalism because I wanted a career that allowed me to both write and learn more about the world around me.” Bentzinger tells us.

Reese Bentzinger enjoys writing stories about politics because she wants to do her part in keeping journalism unbiased.
She also loves covering the arts and doing profiles on people, because there are so many fascinating stories waiting to be discovered.

You can read Bentzinger’s hard news stories, or her ongoing series about the arts in Historic Northeast each week in our paper.

“I’ve enjoyed my experience here so far and I look forward to learning more as the semester goes on.”
