By Las Vegas Tribune Staff
Starting next week, Michelle Mortensen, Emmy award-winning journalist, consumer advocate and political activist is joining the Las Vegas Tribune as a weekly columnist.
Michelle will share her insight on everything from Nevada politics, consumer issues, finances and much more.
Las Vegas is ripe with young journalists lacking experience, but Michelle has more experience than most reporters working today. She has covered the last five presidential elections, the Iraq War, the fall of Baghdad, the death of Osama Bin Laden, and much more. She’s spent almost 20 years on the small screen reporting the news of Nevada and the world to you. She is a name you know and a journalist you can trust.
During her time on 8 News Now, she launched the On Your Side Consumer unit. Under her leadership, she solved problems for thousands of Nevadans and refunded more than a million dollars to people across the Valley after they were scammed or ripped off. Michell has always had your back, and she always will.
In addition to Michelle’s weekly column here, you’ll be able to catch Michelle on a new talk radio show, debuting September 14th, and on her regular series, “What You Need to Know.”
We are excited to welcome Michelle to the Las Vegas Tribune and pleased about the expertise she will bring to the table.
