Salt Lake City Weekly managing editor Rachel Piper was named as one of Editor & Publisher‘s
“25 Under 35”, an annual feature which recognizes “people who are young, bright, and capable of tackling whatever the changing newspaper climate throws at them.”
Rachel Piper joined the paper four years ago as a copy editor and then was promoted to managing editor at 25, the youngest ME that City Weekly (Utah’s only alternative newspaper) has seen in its 30 years. Involved in every piece printed in the paper, from wine reviews to 4,000 word cover stories about typically controversial topics, she also oversees and imposes strict editorial quality standards on City Weekly‘s 15 special issues per year, including three standalone glossies. During her tenure, she has also taken on five new special issues, which she’s embraced without sacrificing standards across the rest of the paper.
