#tbt Fifteen years ago (!) this April 7, the Ithaca College Board of Student Publications interviewed Rob Bluey ’01 for the position of editor-in-chief of The Ithacan. He got the job and went on to lead the paper to its first national title as Best Non-Daily College Newspaper from the Society of Professional Journalists. Rob is now director of digital media and editor in chief of The Foundry blog at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C. He’s married to his Ithacan managing editor, Melissa Bloomrose Bluey ’00; they have two sons, Ben and Luke.
The board will be convening again next Tuesday to select a new EIC for 2014–15.
