Former community newspaper reporter Christine Iwan took over today as the editor of AAN News. Iwan replaces former Editor Amanda Fazzone, who left AAN to pursue a career as a newswire editor.

Iwan agreed last month to accept the position as AAN's Editor. After more than two years of covering crime at a medium-size daily in Northern Virginia, she opted to leave the glamorous life of a community reporter for the chance to report on the alternative newspaper industry.

In July, Fazzone will begin her position as the arts editor of U-WIRE, the nation's only free newswire to college media outlets. Fazzone will leave the Washington, D.C. area to help launch U-WIRE's new New York arts and entertainment bureau.

U-WIRE offers its content to professional media outlets around the country, including syndication partners Dow Jones Interactive, Excite, Lexis-Nexis, USA Today, Washington Week in Review and Yahoo!
