New Assistant Editor Joins Spudman Staff
Scott Christie has joined the staff of Great American Publishing as the assistant editor for Spudman. His duties will include writing and editing content for Spudman, as well as assisting on the company’s other agricultural publications, Fresh Cut, The Fruit Growers News and The Vegetable Growers News.
Christie completed a master’s degree in journalism at the University of Kansas in 2004, and most recently worked as a freelance reporter specializing in the produce industry. He also has worked as a staff writer for The Packer, which was his first taste of writing for and about the agriculture industry, and as a proofreader for academic and technical journals at Allen Press.
Christie is looking forward to getting to know the readers of Spudman and their businesses.
I’m excited to start writing for potato growers, and especially excited to be a part of an industry full of great people,” he said.
Christie recently moved from Kansas back to Michigan, the state he and his wife, Jamie, grew up in. They are happy to be closer to their families and friends and away from the hot Kansas sun. When he is not reading up on potato farming, Christie enjoys mountain biking, skiing, camping and playing with his dog, Chevy.
