Cougar News Staff

The Student Publications Committee elected editors in chief of The Daily Cougar and the Houstonian yearbook during the committee's meeting Thursday.

Matt Dulin, a communication junior and the Cougar's current editor in chief, was elected to a fourth term. He has been editor since Spring 2004.

"I love the paper and I love the people who work there," Dulin said. "I believe strongly in our mission."


Among the changes, Dulin said he hopes to implement during the summer, and fall is a new staff position to handle staff recruitment, training and development. That person would be responsible for monitoring the progress of new staff members and organizing development and training sessions, among other duties.

"If it works out well this semester, I would encourage the next editor in chief to keep that position," Dulin said.

For the Houstonian, the committee elected communication junior Jenna McManus 2005-06 editor in chief.

She said she plans to advertise the yearbook more during her term and try to build enthusiasm on campus about the annual.


Among the changes McManus said she hopes to make in the office is coordinating her staff's work schedules so staff members are able to work together more.

"I think we'd get a lot more done and probably make deadlines better," she said.

She also said she wants to ensure the yearbook is fully staffed early in the fall.

"I would like to get that done as soon as possible so we can begin working on deadlines," McManus said.

In other business, Student Publications department heads said the 2005 Houstonian is on track to be completed by mid-June, and advertising sales in The Daily Cougar are on track for April but down $40,000 from this time last year.
