Nevada Magazine promotes Megg Mueller to top position of executive editor

CARSON CITY, Nevada – Megg Mueller, Nevada Magazine’s managing editor, will step into the new role of executive editor this month. She assumed leadership of the publication after the March 6 retirement of publisher Janet Geary, who ran the magazine for the past 12 years. Nevada Magazine, which dates back to the 1930s, is a division of the Nevada Division of Tourism (Travel Nevada), part of the Nevada Division of Tourism and Cultural Affairs (NDTCA).

“Megg’s enthusiasm for Nevada, along with her strong skills as a collaborator and editor make her the right person to lead Nevada Magazine into the future,” Brenda Scolari, NDTCA director, said.

Mueller has been with Nevada Magazine since April 2014, in the role of managing editor. Born and raised in Reno, Nevada, she began her career in journalism in 1993. Mueller has worked for national and regional newspapers, book publishers, travel websites and magazines, but says that taking the helm of Nevada Magazine is the culmination of her desire to share her love of her home state with the world.
