Seven Days Hires Lauren Ober as New Staff Writer 

From our latest Seven Days press release:

Seven Days, Vermont’s only alternative print and online weekly, has hired a new staff writer — reporter Lauren Ober, formerly of the Burlington Free Press.

Ober received her master’s degree in journalism from Syracuse University in 2003, and worked as a reporter for The Citizen in Auburn, New York, before coming to the Free Press in December 2005. In 2007, she received first-place honors for “Best Daily News Story” from the Vermont Press Association.

Ober is also the author of a blog, “Ober and Out." Recent posts include her reflections on bowling, rap and her neighbor’s squirrel feeder. As a news and features writer at the Free Press, Ober often reported on issues also covered in Seven Days, earning her a reputation as “the Seven Days-iest” writer at the state’s largest daily newspaper. Her move to the weekly makes it official.

“We’re excited for Lauren to join our team,” says Seven Days publisher Paula Routly. “She’s smart, funny and creative, and she’ll fit right in here.” Ober replaces staff writer Mike Ives, who left Seven Days in April and is currently traveling in Asia.
