Indian Country Today has consolidated its operations by moving its editorial headquarters to Oneida, New York.
It is expected that all of the newspaper's editorial coverage and business services will continue uninterrupted. The editorial department sustains its leading national network of full-time reporting and editing staff, with positions in the nation's capitol and in all corners of Indian country. In addition, the paper has created a senior staff reporting office in the Rapid City area to enhance coverage of American Indian issues and events in South Dakota and the Northern Plains and throughout the Northwest. Indian Country Today veteran and former Acting Managing Editor David Melmer has been named to head up this office.
Appointed as Interim Managing Editor to preside over the newspaper's transition is James R. Adams, a former writer, editor and Pulitzer Prize nominee with the Wall Street Journal. Mr. Adams, who holds a Ph.D. in Government from Cornell University, is the author of three hardcover books: Secrets of the Tax Revolt, 1984, The Big Fix: Inside the S&L Scandal, 1989, and, with Doug Frantz, A full Service Bank: How the BCCI Stole Billions Around the World, 1992. In addition to his previous duties at the Wall Street Journal, where he also served as a member of its editorial board, his extensive journalistic experience includes that of Senior Editor at Forbes Magazine and Business Editor of the Waterbury Republican-American. He has also made numerous appearances on network and local media programs including Cable News Network (CNN), McLaughlin Report (CNBC), Financial News Network, Wall Street Journal Report (syndicated), Firing Line, and Geraldo.
