Last Friday, The Daily Republic in Mitchell, S.D. announced that it had promoted Leah Rado to sports editor, effective retroactive to last Thursday. In her new role, Rado will direct the newspaper’s day-to-day sports coverage.
“I?m happy to have Leah move upward in the sports department. She has strong organizational skills and has become a proven and trusted reporter for our newspaper,” said Korrie Wenzel, The Daily Republic?s editor, in a statement.
Rado is replacing Matt Higgins, who resigned in June. A native of Rice Lake, Wis., Rado attended the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, graduating with a degree in print journalism.
