Editor and Publisher
Wes Boyd has been on the job as editor and recently added on the publisher duties for many years and long enjoyed a career in the news room. His first story in the Post-Gazette was forty years ago, and he’s spent twenty-four years working there. A person of varied interests, at one time he was a certified flight instructor and held a commercial pilot rating. The North Country Trail found Wes serving as editor of its hiking publication for a number of years. His “Greatest Trip of a Lifetime” was to the Grand Canyon in 2003. He also puts a lot of attention into “Spearfish Lake Tales.”
Business Manager and Associate Editor
Amanda Ebbutt is the business manager for the Post-Gazette, and she and her father co-own the newspaper. Although she only started working full-time at the paper back in 2010, she’s been around it since preschool days, when her father Wes brought her to work instead of hiring a babysitter. She’s come a long way in the twenty years since then — she’s a 2001 graduate of Hudson Area High School, and a 2005 graduate of Siena Heights University. She spent over two years since in the Peace Corps in Chengdu, China, teaching English as a second language, and also spent time in Japan, Holland and England. Her experience in living in various places in the world taught her something she hadn’t expected: Hudson is a great place to live!
