Scott Anderson to leave Ames Tribune


Ames (Iowa) Tribune Publisher Scott Anderson announced this week that he will be stepping down from his position to pursue other opportunities.

Anderson said his last day at the Tribune will be June 7.

Anderson took over the publisher's position on Nov. 9, 2015. During his time at the Tribune, Anderson oversaw the expansion of new events, such as the annual Best of Story County and Best of Preps awards banquets, and he led an initiative to build a greater collaborative environment between the Tribune and surrounding weeklies, which are owned by GateHouse Media.

Anderson, who lives in Story City, said the decision to leave was a tough one because he and his family have come to love the community they now call home.

"When we moved here we quickly realized that 'Iowa Nice' was a real thing," he said. "We could not have picked a better place to raise our children the last three years. I will forever carry a part of Iowa with me."

Anderson said he will spend the next year pursuing his Master of Business Administration and spending time with his family traveling around the U.S.

He began his newspaper career with Lee Enterprises in Provo, Utah, and served in various capacities on the sales side of the industry. He later moved to the publisher's position with the Pioneer News Group in Driggs, Idaho, before coming to Ames.

"It's hard leaving this great staff," Anderson said. "When you work so long with people they become part of your family. I will be forever grateful for the kindness and love this community has shown me and my family."
