The Publications Committee met yesterday to select the summer and fall editors-in-chief of the North Texas Daily.

Unanimously, the committee named general studies junior James Coreas as editor of the Daily’s summer magazine, On the Record, and journalism senior Nadia Hill as the Daily’s fall editor.

Both Coreas and Hill were the sole applicants for the positions, which were decided by a committee comprised of faculty, students and staff.

Journalism faculty member Kathie Hinnen said she was happy both Coreas and Hill applied for the positions.

“I’m proud that these two veteran journalists are stepping up to the plate,” Hinnen said.

Summer

Coreas joined the Daily staff in 2010 as a photographer and in 2012 advanced to visuals editor for the summer magazine and fall semester. He has previously worked for the Granada Theater, South by Southwest Festival and 35Denton.  Coreas said he is eager to work on the summer magazine.

“I plan to have some long-term projects, and more of an online presence with multimedia to incorporate with the website,” Coreas said.

Department of News chair Nann Goplerud said she looks forward to Coreas using his background in photography to advance the magazine.

“I think he’ll bring a really strong visual element to the summer publication,” Goplerud said. “I like how he wants to encourage photographers to tell a story with a camera.”

Hinnen is also confident in Coreas’ abilities.

“With his strong photography background, Coreas will get to show the faces and dynamics of the UNT community in a magazine format,” Hinnen said. “Which is perfect for visual impact.”

Coreas said that coming from outside the journalism major would be helpful for him.

“Being a different major has exposed me to different organizations and different departments at UNT,” Coreas said. “I feel like I can bring some of those people in to help the Daily grow.”

Fall

Hill joined the paper in 2012 as a writer and became the Arts and Life editor for the 2013 spring semester.

She transferred from the University of Texas and has interned for Collier Law, Students of the World and the Dallas-based magazine The Advocate. One of Hill’s goals is to enhance ntdaily.com to become more inviting to visitors.

“I’m excited to lead the Daily into its next phase as we move more online,” Hill said.

Goplerud said the Daily faces challenges with the changes in journalism industry, but that Hill will figure it out.

“Nadia has some excellent ideas,” Goplerud said. “She seems to have a lot of energy and inspires people around her.”

Hinnen said Hill’s widespread interest in UNT endeavors is a positive trait.

“Under her leadership, I’m confident that the NT Daily will delve into every aspect in an informative and entertaining manner,” Hinnen said.

Hill said she intends to increase the Daily’s social media presence and engage existing students and incoming freshmen.

“It will be a challenge as we change the way our newspaper is made,” Hill said. “But I hope to stay relevant to the student body and give our staff real-world experience.”
