Junior Communications major Marina Misitano has assumed the position of Editor-in-Chief of the Troubadour, Saint Francis University’s student newspaper, for the 2019-20 academic year.

Misitano takes over for previous editor Anna Baughman, who graduated from SFU with an English major and Communications minor in May.

“I am blessed to have the opportunity to serve my fellow students through the Troubadour,” said Misitano.

The Troubadour enters its 92nd academic year as the Voice of Saint Francis University students in 2019-20. The inaugural issue was released on Oct. 1, 1927, with the lead story titled “Schwab ’87 Leads Alumni Association.”

The newspaper went by the name The Loretto for many years before the publication was renamed the Troubadour.

Misitano’s previous experiences with the Troubadour include writing, photography and layout and design. She also serves as Social Media Manager for the Red Flash cheerleading team, of which she is a member.

“Marina has already made significant contributions to the Troubadour during her first two years at SFU,” said Pat Farabaugh, an Associate Professor in the Communications Program and faculty adviser for the student newspaper.

“Our University’s student news outlet – which includes print, web and social media platforms – will be in capable hands under her leadership.”

A graduate of Altoona Area High School, Misitano worked with the Mountain Lion Television Station during her time at AAHS. She has worked as a camera operator and managed livestream graphics for Northeast Conference Front Row webcast productions of Red Flash sporting events.

Misitano has also worked at the YaZo Group, a marketing firm in Altoona.

“I am extremely excited to work with the Communications Department and it is my goal that the student body interact with the Troubadour on a daily basis,” said Misitano.
