Joel Dyer has been named editor of Boulder Weekly, succeeding Pamela White.
Dyer, who served as Boulder Weekly editor from 1993 to 1997, published the Fort Collins Weekly from 2002 to 2007, then worked for Swift Communications after Swift purchased his Fort Collins paper.
White will serve as contributing editor, will continue to write her “Uncensored” opinion column, and will pursue her fiction-writing career full-time. White, writing under the name Pamela Clare, has published 10 romance novels and one novella. In April, she received the Keeper of the Flame lifetime achievement award from the Colorado chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. White, who has been BW editor for 10 years, successfully changed state law in 2010 after exposing prisons’ practice of shackling women in labor.
Dyer, whose work has appeared in national publications such as The New York Times Sunday Magazine, Vanity Fair, U.S. News & World Report and Mother Jones, is also the author of two books: Harvest Of Rage: Why Oklahoma City Is Only The Beginning and Perpetual Prisoner Machine: How America Profits From Crime.
His investigative reporting has landed him in the national spotlight on news programs like The Today Show, Nightline, Good Morning America, ABC, NBC and CBS nightly newscasts, 48 Hours and The Editors. He was called to testify before the Senate Subcommittee on Terrorism in 1996 and has won numerous journalism awards.
