This week we welcome a new member – albeit one with a familiar byline – to the Political Buzz line-up. Veteran reporter Kris Sherman is joining us to cover Pierce County government.
It will be great to have her skills and perspective on one of our most important beats. In 30-some years at The News Tribune, Kris has covered every type of story in every corner of South Sound. She goes after government documents and story tips like a news-seeking missile. At the same time, she has a great touch with human and community stories that comes from living here and really caring about the place. (The team also stands to benefit from her superior baking skills, which she is known for generously sharing with teammates.)
Kris replaces Dave Wickert, who is headed for the Atlanta Journal Constitution, one of the country’s best regional metros. Dave did some amazing work for us in his 12 years at the TNT and has a great future ahead of him. We wish him the best of luck.
