Dwyer takes on new role at Steamboat Pilot & Today
Steamboat Springs — Audrey Dwyer has accepted a new position with Steamboat Pilot & Today as the newspaper’s audience development manager. In her new role, Dwyer will be focusing on building print and digital audiences for the newspaper and other company print publications and websites. Dwyer will also assist with company special events.
“In just a few short weeks, Audrey has had great success with her fresh, new approach to introducing our printed and digital products to new and existing readers,” said Publisher Suzanne Schlicht.
Prior to taking on her new role, Dwyer served for two years as arts and entertainment reporter, guiding weekly Explore content in print and online.
“Audrey did an excellent job directing content for our Explore arts and entertainment section,” Editor Lisa Schlichtman said. “She is a master at social media and did an excellent job of immersing herself in the Steamboat Springs community. Although we’ll miss her as a member of the Steamboat Pilot & Today news team, we’re excited for what Audrey can accomplish in her new position.”
Dwyer holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism and communication studies from the University of Iowa. During college, Dwyer served as metro reporter and arts and entertainment reporter for the Daily Iowan. She also worked as a reporter for Hoopla, the arts and entertainment section of the Cedar Rapids Gazette, and she did freelance writing for the Muscatine Magazine.
Although Dwyer admits change is never easy, she is excited about the opportunities ahead.
“Being the arts and entertainment reporter for the past two years has defined my experience in this community and introduced me to some of the most fascinating and incredible individuals,” Dwyer said. “Their stories have humbled me, inspired me and instilled my passion in journalism and storytelling all over again.
“Now I have a chance to go out into the community and tell people about the stories reporters are working on, not just with an outsider’s view, but from a vantage point where I see day in and day out the inner workings of the newspaper, from an initial story idea to the final print product to online,” Dwyer added.
