About Ray

WPPicHi, I’m Ray Howze, a journalist currently living in Salt Lake City, Utah.

I graduated from the University of Missouri with Bachelors degrees in Journalism and Spanish in December 2013. Since then, I’ve spent time covering the Army at Fort Campbell, Ky., for the Leaf-Chronicle in Clarksville, Tenn., city and county government and development in Williamson County for the Tennessean and a variety of topics for City Weekly in Salt Lake.

During my time reporting on the Army, I covered the home to the 101st Airborne Division. I filled an investigatory role for the paper filing FOIA requests with the Defense Department regarding Fort Campbell and reporting on daily news at the sprawling Army post.

Following that time, I moved down to Nashville, Tenn., to work for The Tennessean and cover Williamson County, Nashville’s largest suburb. While at The Tennessean, we revamped the paper’s digital strategy. In 2016, we led all Gannett outlets in digital growth by a substantial margin. This kind of digital strategy involved producing videos (many for social media) to accompany online stories.

Currently, I work as an editorial assistant with City Weekly, Salt Lake City’s alternative newsweekly. Here, I spend most of my time editing copy and layout for each week’s issue as well as our two large magazine editions, Best of Utah and City Guide. Additionally, I also write news and cover stories for the paper that includes everything from community features, politics and city government to public lands and policy.

While exploring this site, you will find links (and .pdfs) to clips, as well as page designs and my résumé.

Thanks for visiting.
