Shake-up at Nevada Magazine

For 70 years, Nevada Magazine has been chronicling Silver State goings on, from urban to rural happenings, covering every corner of Nevada while uncovering the latest statewide cultural trends with their broad-based editorial content.

Published by the Nevada Commission of Tourism six times per year, some veteran faces have left and some fresh faces recently have been elevated to higher positions in a bit of a leadership shake-up, according to state tourism director Tim Maland.

Journalist Joyce Hollister was promoted to publisher, while Tony deRonnebeck has gone from production manager to art director. Twenty-something, web-savvy, Matt Brown, has moved up from associate editor to editor, and Charlie Johnston will fill Brown’s old position as associate editor.

Hollister says she looks forward to ramping up the redesigned website with more audio and video features. Among her goals is to break into the Southern Nevada marketplace. “People just don’t know about us down there,” she says. “But we just came off the Governor’s Leadership Conference and are poised to do a lot of marketing.”

With fresh blood and a fresh graphic redesign, Nevada Magazine may just be around for another 70 years.
