  • Every Friday until the elections, the Washington Post will flood social media with fact checks
    Commentators may be waxing lyrical about the "post-fact" era, but readers — at least at The Washington Post — don't seem to be buying it. Back in July, National Digital Editor Terri Rupar noticed traffic to the Republican National Convention liveblog "really spiked" when the Post announced on social networks that it would include analysis […]
  • The New York Times is launching digital-first teams to cover gender, education and climate change
    The New York Times appears to be getting further away from its print roots in a bid to cover the news on a variety of platforms. That's the impression one comes away with after a close look at three new job ads from The New York Times posted Friday morning. The ads, which seek editors […]
  • How USA Today unraveled Ryan Lochte’s Rio drama
    Last Thursday, Taylor Barnes and other journalists crowded into a theater across the street from a police station in Rio de Janeiro.

Joan Vadeboncoeur

Herald-Journal

Herald American

Joan E. Vadeboncoeur, went to work at The Post-Standard as a reporter immediately after graduating from Sarah Lawrence College. But since she already had several years experience in theater work, she was a natural choice years later when the job of entertainment writer-editor opened at the Herald-Journal.
Joan, a life resident of the Syracuse area, began working in the box office of Famous Artists Country Playhouse in Fayetteville while still in high school. During summer vacations in college, Joan switched to the Famous Artists Country Playhouse in East Rochester, where she also worked in the box office and as assistant to the producer.

While studying theater at Sarah Lawrence, Joan gained more experience by working in a Broadway producer's office. Her jobs included working on "Midsummer," the play in which Geraldine Page made her Broadway bow. She also appeared in college productions.

After two years at The Post-Standard, Joan moved to the Herald-Journal as a general assignment reporter covering traffic accidents and other mishaps, and writing obituaries. She often rode in ambulances to accident scenes. Soon, her duties expanded as she filled in for vacationing movie and television writers.

Not too much later, Joan was appointed as music writer. Within two years, she became entertainment writer-editor, which included television, music, films, and theater.

Joan, now an entertainment columnist, has received the Syracuse Press Club's Lifetime Achievement Award, and has been honored by the Salt City Center for the Performing Arts and the Contemporary Theatre of Syracuse. She is a former member of Women in Communications. --Joseph A. Porcell
