This is the second in a three-part series of blog posts intended to introduce you to the Legal's editorial team. Today's post focuses on our editors, or as they're collectively known in journalism-speak, the copy desk.
Jeremy Barker is our Associate Editor. In addition to editing all of the articles that appear in the paper each day, Jeremy manages all the contributed columns for the Legal and selects the stories from our other sister publications that appear on the National News page.
Jeremy joined the company in 2007. Previously, he was the associate editor with The Review newspaper in Philadelphia. He has both his bachelor's and master's degrees from Temple University.
If you're interested in finding out how to submit an article to the paper or have questions about any of our contributed content, contact Jeremy at Jbarker@alm.com or 215-557-2488. Follow him on Twitter at @JeremyBarkerTLI.
Stephanie Baum, our Night Editor, assists Jeremy in editing the articles for each day's paper. Additionally, she is in charge of our page 2 People in the News section, gathering and editing information from press releases to compose the page's contents each day. She also writes short news stories for the Delaware Law Weekly.
Stephanie is our newest staff member, having joined the Legal in 2010. Prior to that, she was a reporter with Dow Jones' publication, Financial News, in New York. She received her B.A. in English from Franklin & Marshall College.
Any information about speaking engagements, appointments or elections, promotions, etc., that you'd like submitted for People in the News should be sent to her attention. She can be contacted at Sbaum@alm.com or 215-557-2483, or follow her on Twitter at @SBaumTLI.
Michael Riccardi, our Managing Editor, has held a variety of positions since joining the staff in 1994 as a reporter. In 2002, he became news editor of Pennsylvania Law Weekly, and in 2008 was promoted to managing editor of the Legal and our Delaware publications.
One of the only attorneys on our staff, Michael has his J.D. from Villanova University School of Law and practiced law in Bucks County before joining the Legal.
If you have questions or comments specifically about the Delaware publications or the Legal's coverage in general, you can contact Michael at Mriccardi@alm.com or 215-557-2319. Follow him on Twitter at @MRiccardiTLI.
Jeremy, Stephanie and Michael oversee the day-to-day duties of the layout and editing of all the articles that go into the Legal, Pennsylvania Law Weekly section, Delaware Law Weekly and Delaware Business Court Insider, our newest weekly newsletter. They meet daily with the editor-in-chef, Hank Grezlak (who you can meet here), to plan out each issue, then edit the articles as they are completed by the reporters. They come into the office slightly later in the day, usually between 10 a.m. and noon, and stay until between 7 and 8 p.m. each evening, when the paper is finally "signed off" and sent to the printer.
Jaime Bochet, the Magazines & Supplements Editor, handles most of the special sections that go into the Legal, with the exception of directories. In addition to lending a hand to Jeremy, Stephanie and Michael on editing Legal, PLW and Delaware copy, Jaime oversees the production of the biannual GC Mid-Atlantic magazine, PaLAW: Annual Report on the Legal Profession and the supplements that are inserted into the paper. She is also currently serving as the department's Web editor.
Jaime joined the Legal as an Editorial Assistant in 2003, became Supplements Editor in 2005 and has had her current position since 2007. Prior to joining the Legal, Jaime worked as an online editor for Dow Jones in South Brunswick, N.J., and received her B.A. in English from Franklin & Marshall College in 2002.
If you have questions or comments about the supplements, magazines, blog or website, you can contact Jaime at JBochet@alm.com or 215-557-2368. Follow her on Twitter at @JaimeBochetTLI.
Stay tuned, when tomorrow, we’ll introduce you to the reporters!
