Steve Schwartz is the new design editor for Lone Star Outdoor News, arriving by way of Kansas, after two-year stint with a small daily newspaper south of Kansas City.
The Midwestern flair couldn’t take all of the Texan out of him, however.
Steve grew up in Denton, and graduated from high school in the thriving metropolis of Aubrey — population 2,500. He went to school for a degree in journalism at Texas Tech University and graduated in 2011.
With family from southeast Kansas and the Gulf Coast, Steve’s passion involves any sort of fishing. He has chased trout in Colorado and New Mexico with a flyrod, snagged paddlefish in Oklahoma and caught largemouth bass across north Texas. If it’s in the water, he will (try) to catch it.
“Steve brings a wealth of knowledge to Lone Star Outdoor News,” said Managing Editor Conor Harrison. “Our readers are going to benefit from his knowledge and his design skills when putting the paper together. We are happy to have him as part of the team.”
A passion for the outdoors and responsible management of what it has to offer drew him to work for Lone Star Outdoor News. Working for a small daily newspaper gave him experience as a reporter, writer and designer.
“Every single day is different working in the media industry, and that’s what I love about it,” he said.
