Award-winning journalist Courtney Lamdin is joining the Seven Days news team as a reporter covering the city of Burlington. The native Vermonter has been working at local newspapers since she graduated with a B.A. in journalism from Saint Michael’s College in 2009. She grew a cub reporting gig at the Milton Independent into a six-year stint as editor of the community weekly, then served as executive editor of that publication, plus the Colchester Sun and the Essex Reporter, for three more years. She is currently news editor of the Barre-Montpelier Times Argus.

On Monday, the national trade publication Editor & Publisher featured Lamdin in its “25 Under 35” list of next-generation newspaper leaders.

“We’ve been impressed by Courtney for a long time — and watched her win regional journalism awards for stories such as the horrific hazing scandal at Milton High School,” said publisher and coeditor Paula Routly. In January, her paper beat out Seven Days and snagged a first-place in investigative journalism from the New England Newspaper and Press Association for an exposé about the embezzling director of a youth football program.

“Courtney has done great work with limited resources,” Routly added. “She’s committed to practicing journalism in Vermont.”

Now Lamdin, who lives in Winooski, is ready to get back to writing. “After eight years as an editor, I’m ready to return to my roots and join the solid reporting team at Seven Days,” she said. Lamdin’s beat, covering Burlington City Hall and other Queen City issues, starts Monday, April 15.

While we champion free speech, facts are a matter of life and death during the coronavirus pandemic, and right now Seven Days is prioritizing the production of responsible journalism over moderating online debates between readers.
