Laura Guido, designer/reporter at the Woodinville Weekly, has gained a new title: editor.

Having previously worked at the Whidbey News-Times in Coupeville, Guido joined the Weekly in February of 2020. Since then, she has completely transformed the look and content of the paper.

“When the pandemic hit, Laura kept her feet to the grind and made sure we never missed a paper,” said Eric LaFontaine, owner and publisher of the Weekly.

The position has been vacant since previous editor Bob Kirkpatrick left the paper in September.

With the team now assembled, LaFontaine said the Weekly will begin publishing more digital content at a faster pace, with the print paper as a compliment to the digital news experience.

“Laura will continue to solidify herself as a tremendous journalist and I’m very proud of her for taking on the editor roll,” LaFontaine said. “I anticipate Laura will grow into an award-winning editor and we’re very lucky to have her.”
