NEW EDITOR. Jonathan Menard replaces Derek Clontz, who left the Herald-Guide in March.
Jonathan Menard has joined the staff of the St. Charles Herald-Guide as editor.

Menard came to St. Charles Parish from Andalusia, Ala., where he served as sports editor of the Andalusia Star-News. He is a graduate of the University of Alabama, but was born in Shreveport.

"I am excited to get back to Louisiana, which has been a career goal of mine," Menard said. "This is a great community and I am just proud to be a part of it."

Menard began his career as a sports writer for 'Bama Magazine, where he wrote articles dealing with all aspects of Alabama athletics. From there, he joined the staff of Equipment World Magazine and covered various construction and industry related topics.

That work soon led to his job as sports editor of the Star-News, which gave Menard the experience he needed to attain the position of editor at the Herald-Guide.

"This is a great opportunity for me to work with a wonderful staff," Menard said. "Everyone here at the Herald-Guide is committed to giving this community the coverage it deserves."
