Chicago Reader
Mara Shalhoup joined Creative Loafing in 2000 after working at the Macon Telegraph. She was promoted from senior editor to editor-in-chief last January. At the Chicago Reader -- another Creative Loafing-owned weekly -- Shalhoup pledges to hold "sacred the longtime mission of the paper, which as I see it is telling the stories no one else tells." || More from Creative Loafing Atlanta.
