Sullivan named Mirror’s assistant editor

Federal Way Mirror reporter Olivia Sullivan has been named assistant editor for the Mirror and its sister publications in King County.

Sullivan joined the Mirror news team in 2018. In this role, she will continue to cover Federal Way news and events while spearheading special projects for some of King County’s print publications. She will also assist where needed with staff management and newspaper production.

“Olivia has grown by leaps and bounds into a well-rounded journalist who delivers everything from community features to hard-hitting enterprise,” said Andy Hobbs, editor of the Mirror and editorial director for King County publications. “This is a much-needed role that will only make us better in our mission to produce quality local journalism.”

Sullivan is a 2014 graduate of Decatur High School and studied journalism at Highline College and the University of Washington Tacoma. Previously, she wrote for Metro Parks Tacoma and Alaska Airlines’ Alaska Beyond in-flight magazine.

“Local journalism is an integral part of any community,” she said. “I’m excited to continue unearthing important stories within, and about, the cities we cover in King County.”
