The Hoya published its first issue today after transitioning to a new editorial and publishing staff for the fall semester. This issue will be the first print issue of The Hoya after its transition to an online daily, print weekly publication.
Toby Hung (COL ’18), will continue to serve as the 143rd editor-in-chief of The Hoya, beginning the second half of his yearlong term. Daniel Almeida (MSB ’18), The Hoya’s business director, will also remain in his position to finish the second half of his term next semester.
Ian Scoville (COL ’19) and Marina Tian (NHS ’19), who served as campus news editor and Guide editor during the spring, respectively, will begin their semester-long terms as executive editors. Scoville expressed enthusiasm for The Hoya’s expansion to a daily publication.
“It’s an exciting time for The Hoya,” Scoville said. “Marina and I look forward to expanding our coverage to be more inclusive of typically underrepresented populations and to better suit the evolving nature of journalism.”
Jesus Rodriguez (SFS ’19), who was managing editor in the spring, will continue serving as the managing editor for the upcoming semester. Rodriguez said he looks forward to working with the new staff to continue The Hoya’s work.
“The one constant task of our jobs as part of The Hoya’s leadership is to continually look for ways to improve and innovate,” Rodriguez said. “I am thrilled to keep doing that for another term alongside our most talented: Marina, Ian and Toby.”
Matthew Trunko (MSB ’18) will be taking over from Kristen Fedor (COL ’17) as chair of the board of directors for a yearlong term. Trunko said he is eager to further his work for The Hoya, which has played a pivotal role in his time at Georgetown.
“I am very honored and excited to have been elected the new chairman. The Hoya has been the hallmark of my Georgetown experience,” Trunko said. “By working with our talented team, I want to make sure future generations of staffers and readers continue to participate in The Hoya’s unique experience.”
Maura McDonough (COL ’18) will be serving as VP of Technical Operations. McDonough said she is eager to bring to bear her extensive experience to enhance The Hoya’s staff and the publishing division.
“I plan to bring along insight and skills that will add to an already incredibly hard-working and revolutionary staff,” McDonough said. “My goal is to bring even more efficiency and inclusivity to the already very well-run publishing division.”
Gabriella Cerio (COL ’18), who now serves as VP of Corporate Communications, said she is looking forward to helping The Hoya in its transition to an online daily.
“I am looking forward to being part of such a transformative year at The Hoya and working and learning with some of the most talented, passionate students on campus,” Cerio said.
