Special to The News-Courier—
LUFKIN—LK Media Group has named Jackie Zimmerman as Managing Editor of The Post Dispatch, The Floyd
County Hesperian-Beacon and The Knox County News-Courier.
Whitney Wyatt continues as Editor in Chief of the Red River Sun.
“By adding Jackie Zimmerman to our team, it will make a seasoned journalist available full-time to Post, Floyd County and Knox County to help support those papers,” said Publisher Bruce Green. “All local editors will, of course, continue their excellent work as always. But Jackie will be there for them and, hopefully, an additional source of great ideas and writing.”
Zimmerman earned a bachelor’s degree in communications and a minor in business communication from Stephen F. Austin State University, and she spent six years working at weekly newspapers in Washington State and southern Florida before moving back home to Texas to work at the Lufkin Daily News as a reporter and then as city editor.
After six years at the newspaper, she joined a local public relations firm where she spent nine years as a marketing specialist and then as general manager of the firm before running her own public relations company.
