Tucson Local Media is proud to announce that Mari Herreras has been named managing editor of the Tucson Weekly.

Herreras has been with the Weekly since 2007. In her seven years at the paper, the Tucson native has gotten to the heart of Tucson with compelling features and investigative pieces on everything from various controversies at the Tucson Unified School District to issues facing Tucson’s less-advantaged residents.

"When I returned to my hometown to work for our alternative newsweekly it was a dream come true," Herreras said. "This next step allows me to continue to do what I love most: Tucson in all its beautiful, ugly and weird. I'm excited to bring my voice and vision to the Weekly and excited to hear from our most important voice—our readers."

Tucson Local Media Publisher Ryan Kedzierski said, “Mari is the obvious choice for the position. She loves Tucson, is passionate about the direction the Tucson Weekly is going and will do her best to make sure it returns to being a strong, edgy publication our readers and the community can be proud of.”

Besides Herreras being promoted, Tucson Local Media is also excited to announce the addition of staff writer Heather Hoch, who started work on Nov. 24.

Hoch comes to the Tucson Local Media staff with two years of writing experience. Hoch was a writer for the Phoenix New Times.
