Nancy Vogt


Nancy Vogt is editor of the Pineandlakes Echo Journal, covering eight communities in the Pequot Lakes-Pine River areas - from Nisswa to Hackensack and Pequot Lakes to Crosslake.

I've been a journalist for nearly 35 years, graduating in December 1987 from what was then called Moorhead State University with a degree in print journalism. (Yep, that dates me! No such thing as "multimedia journalist" back then - just print, broadcast or public relations.)

I started my career as a reporter and then copy editor/page designer for the Owatonna People's Press (where I met my husband) before joining the Brainerd Dispatch in 1992 as a reporter, then a copy editor and page designer.

I became editor of the Lake Country Echo in Pequot Lakes in July 2006. That newspaper merged with the Pine River Journal in 2013 to become the Echo Journal (with no city in our name - that causes confusion!).
