Press-Banner reporter Joe Shreve has been named interim editor of the Press-Banner, effective April 8.

Shreve succeeds editor Peter Burke, who is taking a position in Mountain View.

“Joe will do a great job continuing to serve the readers of Scotts Valley and San Lorenzo Valley,” Burke said. “He’s a strong, factual and fair reporter and he’s ready to take on the challenges of being the public face of the paper.”

Shreve, 30, is a graduate of San Lorenzo Valley High School (2002) and Humboldt State University where he earned a degree in Journalism and Mass Communication. He worked as a copy editor at the Eureka Reporter in Eureka and became a reporter at the Press-Banner in November 2010.

Shreve will serve as interim editor while Tank Town Media, which owns the Press-Banner, completes a hiring process to fill the open staff position.

Burke, who took a position working for Google News in Mountain View, has been with the Press-Banner since 2007. He served as an intern before being hired in September 2007 as a full-time reporter. He became sports editor, before being named editor in July 2009.

The Press-Banner has a weekly circulation of 16,250 and mails to almost every home in Scotts Valley and the San Lorenzo Valley.

Glad to see Joe as interim editor and I hope he becomes editor. Having hired him at The Eureka Reporter, I knew then that Joe had all the qualities and skills to be an excellent editor some day. He not only has the journalistic credentials, but he also has the people skills. I also agree with what Mr. Burke said about Joe.
