The Oakland Post

Katie LaDuke
Katie LaDuke is the managing editor of The Oakland Post. She is responsible for content creation, editing and overseeing the design and copy team for the production of print issues. 

In 2016, LaDuke joined the staff as a reporter, mainly focusing on sports. She then made the transition to copy editor and eventually chief copy editor in 2018 before becoming the managing editor for the 2019-2020 school year.

Besides writing about sports for The Post, LaDuke has also highlighted student organizations and Oakland administration. Her most recent journalistic venture has been dabbling in the art of satire to expand her evolving skill set.

In high school, LaDuke was the editor-in-chief of her school’s yearbook for two years but did not know if she wanted to continue with journalism in college. Once she started at Oakland in 2016, she fell back in love with writing and design. In April 2020, she will be graduating with a double major in journalism as well as public relations and strategic communication.
