Laura Wingard has been the inewsource managing editor since 2017. She’s been in the journalism business for some four decades, spending most of her career as an ink-stained wretch after graduating from Cal State Fullerton. She’s worked as a reporter and/or editor at six newspapers, including The San Diego Union-Tribune. That job is what brought Laura to San Diego in 2002. She served in a variety of roles there including as enterprise editor, government editor, public safety/legal affairs editor and metro editor. She directed the newspaper’s award-winning coverage of the October 2007 wildfires and the 2010 disappearance of Poway teenager Chelsea King. She also oversaw reporting on San Diego’s pension crisis. Laura was born in Ohio — Go Buckeyes! — but is happy now to live with her husband near East Mission Bay. Cool ocean breezes in the morning — and a fun job — make her happy.
