Idaho Press-Tribune editor takes job with city of Nampa

Holbrook, VickieVickie Holbrook, the managing editor of the Idaho Press-Tribune, is leaving the Nampa daily paper to take a job as the public information officer for the city of Nampa.

Holbrook will start her new position Jan. 6.

Holbrook, 57, began her career in 1979 at the Press-Tribune after graduating from Oregon State University with a journalism degree, and moved up through the ranks, becoming managing editor in 1996.

Holbrook said she’s leaving her position at the 20,000-circulation newspaper because she wanted a different challenge and a more regular schedule, not because of any lack of confidence in the future of journalism.

“It’s been a great profession, and I think the future for journalists will be very exciting,” she said.”But I’ve stuck with the business for so long that I’m looking forward to maybe a little less stress. I am sure doing my job at the city will still be challenging, but I don’t think I’ll be in a 24-hour news cycle.”

Press-Tribune Publisher Matt Davison is seeking a new managing editor.
