This past week, Opinions Editor Pam Stallsmith left the Richmond Times-Dispatch to focus on family responsibilities. We greatly appreciate her work.
Pam became Opinions editor in February 2019, guiding the pages to focus on solutions-based editorials about the challenges facing our community. She led the creation of the RTD Opinions Community Advisory Board, a diverse group of readers who help inform the section’s understanding of the region’s issues. And she and Associate Opinions Editor Chris Gentilviso were awarded the Virginia Press Association’s 2020 D. Lathan Mims Award for Editorial Leadership, the first time the RTD has been recognized with this honor.
A search for a new Opinions editor is underway to build on these accomplishments. Qualified applicants will have a strong news and opinions writing background, and we invite them to email résumés and writing samples to RTD Executive Editor Paige Mudd at: firstname.lastname@example.org
