Kyle Barnett has joined the staff of the St. Charles Herald-Guide as staff reporter and Lifestyles editor.

Barnett was most recently an intern and freelance reporter for broadcast wire service Metro Networks in Springfield, Ill. where he completed his masterís degree in Public Affairs Reporting at the University of Illinois-Springfield in the summer of 2011.

"I learned a lot in my time away, but I was ready to come back nearly as soon as I left," Barnett said. "There is no other place I enjoy as much as southeast Louisiana."

Although he was raised in the Ozarks in southern Missouri, Barnettís hiring by the Herald-Guide is a homecoming of sorts. His first job in journalism was in 2007 covering the River Parishes as an education reporter for LíObservateur. After leaving LíObservateur in early 2008 Barnett served as an academic editor at Tulane Medical School and was an executive staff member at Tulane Universityís radio station WTUL-FM where he helped expand the stationís news programming and also served as editor-in-chief of its quarterly music and culture magazine The Vox.

"Iím happy to be back in St. Charles Parish," Barnett said. "Iíve always enjoyed this community and I can guarantee Iíll continue to produce high-quality journalism expected of a true community newspaper."
