Please welcome reporter Gregg Blesch to our editorial staff. Working out of our Chicago office, Blesch, 33, covers healthcare legal affairs and regional healthcare business news in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio. Blesch replaces reporter Mark Taylor, who left the magazine in February. Most recently, Blesch covered healthcare for the Daily Southtown, a newspaper serving the south side of Chicago and the citys southern suburbs.
He also covered education for the Columbian, a daily newspaper serving Vancouver, Wash. Blesch has a Master of Science in journalism from Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill., and a Bachelor of Arts in English from Willamette University in Salem, Ore. You can reach Blesch at [email protected]
Also, Shawn Rhea, our new reporter in New York, is 43. I forgot to add that fact to Rheas staff announcement (April 16, p. 17). No one is exempt from our editorial style rules, not even our own staff.
David Burda, 47, editor
