Christina Lords and Chadd Cripe have been named editor and assistant editor of the Idaho Statesman, respectively. Lords has been working for the Statesman since 2017, when she was hired as a breaking news editor and reporter. She has worked at other Idaho papers, including the Moscow-Pullman Daily News, the Post Register and the Idaho Press. Cripe has worked for the Statesman for over 20 years, most recently serving as the Statesman’s sports lead, outdoors reporter and investigative sports reporter. His investigative reporting was just recognized by the Associated Press Sports Editors national contest.

Hayley Harding joined the Idaho Statesman in March as a local government reporter covering Boise, Ada County and beyond. She previously worked as a watchdog reporter at the Salisbury Daily Times in Maryland and interned all over the country, including for McClatchy D.C. and the Denver Post.  

Idaho Education News’ multimedia specialist Andrew Reed has accepted a position with EdSource in Oakland, Calif.  Sami Edge replaces Reed. A University of Oregon graduate, Edge joined the EdNews team Feb. 14 as a staff reporter. She previously covered public safety at The Santa Fe New Mexican. When she wasn’t chasing sirens or wildfire smoke, Edge was digging into the criminal justice system. She is an award-winning journalist with the New Mexico Press Association for her breaking news coverage of a jailhouse suicide. At EdNews, Edge will focus on education reporting with an eye toward multimedia and storytelling innovation. 

New copy editor Tess Fox joins the Idaho Press on April 9; she comes from the Bend Bulletin.
