The Lane Media Commission appointed The Torch editor-in-chief for 2015-16 on June 2. André Casey will take the helm on June 16 and will work through the summer. “I plan to restructure The Torch to move into the modern era by incorporating a digital-first workflow,” Casey said.

The Torch design editor for 2014-15, Casey is a media arts major and has just been accepted into the graphic design program. He has elected to take the program over two years instead of one in order to devote time to The Torch.

“Included in my vision for The Torch is breaking into broadcast media with podcasts and video,” he said. Casey will be interviewing people for staff positions for both print and web media, including reporters, photojournalists, designers and multi-media.

Most staff will commence work at the beginning of fall term. However, Casey anticipates tackling other projects during the summer for which he might need help.

Beginning June 16, interested applicants can reach Casey at: torcheditor@lanecc.edu.
