‘New’ reporter on Pierce County beat

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.

    I will greatly miss Dave.
    He was one of the few remaining reporters who actually tried to get a PC story out without the eidtorial spin Drs. distorting it beyond recognition. Much appeared beyond his control but I always felt he was one of the few who really tried and it was really appreciated.
    Losing Dave, Joe Turner, etc.
    Sad lossess for the TNT.

    Congratulations to Dave, moving up to one of America’s top papers. Kris has done a great job with Tacoma and schools reporting, and I know will do the same with the County beat.
