Herald newsroom sees staff changes

Several new employees have joined The Herald newsroom.


Corey Stolzenbach joined as sports editor in early November, and is leading the sports department’s coverage.

The 28-year-old graduated from Columbia College Chicago in 2014.

Previously, he was the sports editor at the McAlester News-Capital in McAlester, Oklahoma. Before that, he spent time freelancing for different prep sports, blogged and wrote biographies for the SABR Bio Project for sabr.org. He also did play-by-play for Friday Night Lights, a series of games the Chicago Bandits held at their softball stadium featuring high school softball teams. He also interned at the high school sports desk for the Chicago Sun-Times.

Stolzenbach replaces Hendrix Magley, who left in August for a job at the Courier & Press in Evansville.


Marlena Sloss returned to The Herald in September as a staff photographer after working at the newspaper as a photo intern in 2018.

The 26-year-old from Juneau, Alaska, has a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Whitman College and a Master of Arts in Visual Communication from Ohio University.

Before returning to The Herald, she interned as a photographer at The Washington Post last summer. Previously, she interned at The Post and Courier in Charleston, South Carolina, and The Courier & Press in Evansville.


Kayla Renie will also join The Herald’s photo department through June as an intern.

The 23-year-old from Peachtree City, Georgia, graduated from the University of Georgia in May 2018 with a degree in journalism, with a concentration in photojournalism.

She has previously interned at The Muskegon Chronicle in Michigan and The Victoria Advocate in Texas.

Her first day at The Herald is Tuesday.
