Country Weekly Editor-In-Chief Lisa Konicki has announced two new hires to the country lifestyle publication’s senior staff. Effective immediately, Joseph Hudak will serve as Deputy Editor and Tammy Ragusa will serve as Senior Writer. Both will report to Konicki and Managing Editor Ken Tucker.
Hudak most recently served as Senior Editor for TV Guide, and has experience working with National Geographic Channel, Times Leader and more. Ragusa was most recently Producer and Writer with Premiere Radio Networks, and has also worked for Capitol Records Nashville and RCA Label Group.
“Joseph and Tammy are great additions to the Country Weekly staff,” said Konicki. “They both are highly regarded among artists and in the Nashville community. I look forward to their contributions as we move Country Weekly and CountryWeekly.com forward. By adding them to a team that already includes Senior Writer Bob Paxman, I am confident that the high expectations of our readers will continue to be satisfied and exceeded.”
Hudak and Ragusa will be based at Country Weekly’s Nashville headquarters.
