Anderson joins Salisbury Post news staff

New reporter

Natalie Anderson

SALISBURY — Natalie Anderson has joined the Post as a news reporter focusing on county government and business news.

Anderson grew up in Louisiana and graduated from Louisiana State University in December with a bachelor’s degree in journalism. She was editor in chief of LSU’s student newspaper, The Reveille, as well as working in reporting roles with the Desert Sun in Palm Springs, California, and The Advocate in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

In 2019, Anderson covered federal disaster relief as part of a national investigative reporting fellowship. Her work from that project was published in The Washington Post, Miami Herald, Houston Chronicle and Seattle Times.
Anderson’s first day at the Post was Jan. 29. Since then, said Editor Josh Bergeron, she’s quickly gotten to work reporting on the 2020 Rowan County commissioners race and other stories on her beat.
“Natalie is a talented, young journalist who we’re thrilled to add to our staff,” Bergeron said. “She’s bringing a passion for and excitement about news reporting to the Post.”
