Longtime Press-Tribune editor Holbrook leaving the newspaper business

Idaho Press-Tribune Managing Editor Vickie Holbrook is leaving the newspaper business after more than 34 years at the newspaper, and will become public information officer for the city of Nampa under incoming Mayor Bob Henry on Jan. 6, the Press-Tribune reports today. Holbrook’s career at the Press-Tribune spanned the ranks from cub reporter to top editor. Press-Tribune Publisher Matt Davison called Holbrook an “exceptional editor” and said the staff will miss her greatly.

“One of Vickie’s greatest strengths has been her unique ability to teach others how to be a successful journalist,” Davison said. “There are dozens of reporters spread across the entire country who will always remember the lessons Vickie taught them.” The Press-Tribune’s full report is online here.
