UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Journalist Suki Dardarian has joined the Arthur W. Page Center for Integrity in Public Communication’s advisory board, bringing with her more than 35 years in the news business and a unique view of public communications as a leader in journalism.
Dardarian joined Minneapolis Star Tribune in April 2014 as senior managing editor and vice president, overseeing news and digital. Prior to that, she spent 15 years in senior management at The Seattle Times, including roles as managing editor and director of audience development/innovation.
“Having another voice representing journalism on the advisory board is incredibly important to achieving our goals of promoting integrity in all public communications,” said Denise Bortree, center director and associate professor of advertising-public relations at Penn State. “In addition to Suki’s seasoned, award-winning perspective, she adds perspectives from the Pacific Northwest and Upper Midwest, which we’ve never had on the board before.”
After graduating from the University of Washington with a bachelor’s degrees in communications and political science, Dardarian reported for The Everett Herald, The News Tribune, and The Seattle Times — all daily newspapers in Washington. She also is a former president of the Associated Press Media Editors.
