MADISON, Wis. (1/2/14)--News Now Director of Online Editorial Leigh Gregg will post her last story today, retiring after more than 28 years with the Credit Union National Association's Madison, Wis., office.
She joined CUNA in 1985 as a public relations writer, before moving in 1986 to a senior editor position at Credit Union Magazine. Gregg became editor of CUNA's bimonthly Credit Union Executive Journal and served in that position until 2001, when she joined News Now, CUNA's online daily news service, as editorial director.
"There is no other single person to whom News Now owes more for its reputation for quality, and depth and breadth of credit union news coverage than Leigh Gregg," said Lisa McCue, CUNA vice president of editorial communications. "She will be missed for her dedication, her superior skills, her love of credit unions, and for the easy way she works with people."
Prior to joining CUNA, Gregg taught journalism and mass communications for 12 years at Rutgers University, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Salem College, and West Virginia University. She also worked at daily newspapers in Ohio and Pennsylvania.
She is succeeded by Michelle Willits, who returns to News Now after serving as manager of new alliances for CUNA Strategic Services and advertising supervisor for Credit Union Magazine.
