Pam Fisher to edit Michigan daily
Pam Fisher, spent 10 years as an editor and writer for the Examiner and Oakland Tribune/Alameda Newspaper Group, has been named editor of The Holland Sentinel, a 7-day, 19,000-circulation daily in western Michigan owned by GateHouse Media. She will also have the title of "director of audience development" and manage about 25 people. Fisher, 48, was a freelance travel writer for that paper in the early 1990s before she moved to the Bay Area. In 2004, she left the Bay Area to become a section editor at the Cincinnati Enquirer. In 2007, HarperCollins recruited her as a senior acquisitions editor working with authors from Grand Rapids-based Zondervan.
