We’re excited to announce that Doug Alder, an award-winning Seattle journalist, has joined Next Door Media as editor of our neighborhood news network. Doug is working with our site editors to enhance coordination across neighborhoods, expand regional news coverage in North Seattle, and grow our community and social media efforts.
Doug worked at KING 5 News as executive producer, winning three Emmy Awards during his 8 years at the station. Later, in his role as the communications manager for the city of Newcastle, he created a community news blog that was one of the first city-run blogs in the nation. His social media efforts earned him the Municipal Excellence Award from the Association of Washington Cities. Welcome, Doug!
