I just sent this press release out to various Vermont media outlets and university public relations departments, so I'm posting it here, too.

You might recognize Tyler Machado (far right), deputy online editor, who has been posting a lot on this blog. He's also been managing our Twitter and Facebook accounts, and writing the Daily 7 newsletter most days.

A belated welcome to Megan, Celia and Tyler (pictured, in that order, from left to right)!


Vermont’s Largest Independent Newsweekly Hires Three Recent Grads

Seven Days, Vermont’s only alternative print and online weekly, has hired three recent college graduates for editorial, design and web positions.

Tyler Machado, a 2010 graduate of St. Michael’s College, is applying his B.A. in journalism and mass communications as the deputy online editor for Machado was the tech editor for St. Michael’s online news publication, The ECHO. As a senior, he interned as a web developer for Union Street Media and Vermont’s Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation. He rebuilt the state parks website. Machado, 22, also reviews music for Seven Days.

Morrisville native Celia Hazard, 23, joined Seven Days’ production department as a graphic designer this spring. Hazard attended Peoples Academy High School in Morrisville, and is a 2009 graduate of Parsons The New School of Design in New York City. She was the lead designer for Seven Days2010 What’s Good: The Students’ Off-Campus Guide to Burlington, which is now available at colleges and other locations in the Burlington area.

Megan James, a 2006 graduate of Middlebury College, has joined Seven Days’ editorial team as a part-time arts writer, primarily covering dance, theater, literature and visual art. Previously, James was a reporter at the Addison Independent. She moved to New York City in 2008, where she was a reporter for the Riverdale Press. 27-year-old James currently resides in Montpelier, and in her spare time grows organic vegetables and cares for free-range animals as an apprentice at Northfield’s Green Mountain Girls’ Farm.

Machado and James were hired for what are both new positions at Seven Days. “Even in this economy, demand for our content continues to grow,” says publisher and co-editor Paula Routly. “It’s heartening to be able to find talented, hard-working young employees who are looking to put down roots in Vermont.”

Seven Days publishes a free weekly newspaper every Wednesday, which is distributed at more than 1000 locations in northern and central Vermont, and Plattsburgh, New York. The company, founded in 1995 by Routly and Pamela Polston, celebrates its 15th anniversary this September.
