Exciting Developments and New Perspectives: The Evolution of Journalism at La Crosse Tribune


Great things are happening at the La Crosse Tribune

Welcome to an exciting chapter in the story of the La Crosse Tribune. Over the past year, there’s been a buzz of activity both within our walls and in the vibrant La Crosse community that we serve. The city has embraced us warmly, offering a wealth of experiences and opportunities that we’ve eagerly explored. The connection between the Tribune and La Crosse is a dynamic relationship, one that thrives on mutual discovery and growth.

We’re ecstatic to share that our news team has reached full strength—a notable achievement in today’s challenging labor market. This milestone enhances our ability to serve the community with rich, comprehensive news coverage.

Joining our team, Saskia Hatvany, our Visual Journalist, has been making waves with her exceptional photography and videography, highlighting the natural allure and resources of the region. Whether it’s captivating drone imagery or impactful stories about local events and personalities, Saskia brings a fresh perspective to our visual storytelling. Recent projects have included an in-depth look at women hunters and the celebrated return of Heileman’s Old Style brewing to La Crosse, showcasing the diversity and depth of our community’s stories.

New to the newsroom, Caden Perry and Gavin Michaelson have delved into significant local and regional news, covering everything from administrative changes at UW-La Crosse to developments in the River Point District project and more. Their reporting is laying the groundwork for specialized beats across the River Valley Media Group, promising deeper insights into government, business, and community news.

Looking ahead, we’re gearing up for extensive election coverage, following new initiatives from the Department of Transportation, and keeping an eye on developments within the La Crosse School District and Mayo Clinic. UW-La Crosse’s search for a new chancellor and the city-county partnership on homelessness are also among the key stories we’re tracking.

Our commitment doesn’t end with news. The Tribune’s sports team continually delivers in-depth coverage of local athletics, shining a spotlight on the achievements and stories of area athletes, coaches, and teams.

As we navigate the year ahead, our promise to the La Crosse community is to remain your trusted source for breaking news, in-depth reporting, and coverage of the events and issues that matter most to you.

To foster a closer relationship with our readers, we invite you to connect with us, share your questions and insights, and become an active participant in our ongoing story. The La Crosse Tribune is more than a newspaper; it’s a platform for community engagement, understanding, and growth. We look forward to continuing this journey together, exploring the stories that shape our community and our lives.
