In her 27 years working for newspapers Kim Wynn has seen a lot of changes in the field of journalism.

And despite the industry’s challenges, she has stuck with it out of her love for informing the public.

“Now matter how long you’ve been doing it or how jaded you might get in the newspaper business, the bottom line is that you’re not just selling a product,” she said.

“We’re selling the American way of life. Without the fourth estate, you wouldn’t have a real democracy.”

Wynn will bring her experience to Leader Publications as the assistant editor, a new position. Her first day was Monday.

Wynn, a University of New York at Brockport alumna, has worked for the Grand Rapids Press and, most recently, The Herald-Palladium in St. Joseph. She began her career as a reporter before shifting to the copy desk.

A St. Joseph resident, Wynn is excited to get to know the community.

“I’m really looking forward to exploring a new area,” she said. “I did come down here last year for the (Hunter) Ice Festival, which was really quite fun.”

Wynn has two sons who live in Grand Rapids.
