New Mirror reporter: From the big city to Chelan


Hello everybody, my name is Diana Piñon and I am the new reporter for the Lake Chelan Mirror. I have been in town for a month now and I absolutely love it. I moved away from my home in Everett to start my career in journalism. I am glad I was given the opportunity to come down to this beautiful town and do what I love.

I began my college career at Everett Community College in the Journalism and Media Communication Program where I joined The Clipper, the student news organization. I soon fell in love with storytelling. From EvCC I transferred over to Washington State University Everett into the Integrated Strategic Communications Program. In this program I was introduced to public relations and marketing, while these subjects were interesting to explore, my heart was still in journalism. During my senior year at WSU Everett, I was the social media intern for the Northwest Innovation Resource Center.  After four long years, I graduated back in May with my B.A. in Communications.

I am also fluent in Spanish since it was my first language, I enjoy being outdoors and exploring new things around me.

I always knew that writing for the community felt right to me and this is why I am here today.

For any story suggestions feel free to email me at or call me at (509)682-2213 or (425) 361-5214.
