My name is Tony D. Buhr. I have worked in the newspaper industry for seven years. During this time I have worked as an editor, a columnist, and a beat reporter.
I spent some time after college exploring different industries. I worked for non-profits and even taught English overseas in Japan.
I currently work for The Wenatchee World in Wenatchee, Washington. I cover the environment, county and health. Some of the highlights of my career include investigate pieces on homelessness in Wenatchee, the opioid epidemic in Walla Walla, murder trials and more.
I am looking for the next step up in my career. I love investigative reporting. I focus on the use of creative imagery in my writing. I think it is important to pull readers into a story by providing a little bit of life behind some of the routine journalistic style we use.
If you're interested in hiring a young and experienced reporter who is interested in diving deeper into the industry, please message me.
