Longtime Register editor Pam Reinig is retiring. Reinig, who has led the paper for 10 years, is leaving to focus full-time on ministry. She has been pastor at Illyria Community Church, Elgin, for six years.

Reinig began her journalism career nearly 45 years ago at the Cedar Rapids Gazette where she worked in several capacities including assistant managing editor. After a brief time in marketing, she returned to journalism when she and her husband, Mark, relocated to Northeast Iowa in 2007. She joined the Register in 2009 as an ad salesperson and writer. She was named editor in 2010, after the paper was purchased by Gary Howe.

Howe last year sold the Reigster and three other publications to Morris Communications.

“When my husband I moved to Elkader, we didn’t know a soul here,” said Reinig. “Working at the paper has given me the opportunity to meet so many people and to share their stories with our readers. I’m so grateful for the support and encouragement I’ve been given.”

Reinig will finish her career at the Register in mid-May.
