The Times-Advocate would like to welcome Mike Peterson as an interim co-editor.
Mike Peterson is a local, award-winning freelance writer and designer with years of writing, copy editing and newspaper layout design experience.
He likes to tell people that he’s been writing short stories, poems, and articles since he was old enough to tap on a keyboard. That part is completely true, but he does overuse that anecdote.
Mike Peterson is the current editor- in-chief of The Telescope, Palomar College’s independent newspaper. He has also written for the San Diego Union- Tribune and various online publications.
Under his term as Managing Editor of The Telescope, the newspaper has won various first-place awards from the California Newspaper Publishers Association, the Society of Professional Journalists, and the Journalism Association of Community Colleges.
Originally born in Los Angeles, Peterson now lives in North County San Diego, and can’t imagine living anywhere else.
