Geary new Nevada Magazine publisher

The second Record-Courier staffer in a row has been named publisher of Nevada Magazine.

Former R-C Publisher Janet Geary was named publisher of the magazine, succeeding former R-C People Editor Joyce Hollister, according to tourism Director Tim Maland.

Geary, a longtime Nevada resident, brings six years of publishing experience to her new role.

"Nevada Magazine is a highly valued publication in our state, and we searched for someone with vast personal knowledge of the state as well as extensive professional experience," Maland said. "Janet has all the qualities we hoped for in a publisher, and we are happy to welcome her to our team."

Her publishing experience includes The Record-Courier and The World newspaper in Coos Bay, Ore.

Geary earned her bachelor's degree in accounting from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and has worked in or managed the sales departments of several newspapers including the Nevada Appeal and the Reno Gazette-Journal in Nevada and the Albany Democrat Herald and Statesman Journal in Oregon.

"I have spent most of my life in Nevada and have family all over the state, so I am happy to be back home," Geary said. "Nevada Magazine celebrates everything I love about this great state, from the cowboy culture of the rural areas to the dining and shopping in Las Vegas and Reno. I am fortunate to do the work I love in the place I love."

Geary has also worked in the tourism industry as president of the Carson Valley Chamber of Commerce and was president-elect of the Minden Rotary club.
