Tempo editor passes the torch

Posted

This week marks the first official change of editors for the Tempo arts and entertainment magazine in a quarter of a century.

Every week for the last 25 years, Tempo was the product of Rick Romancito's dedication to journalism, the arts and the Taos community. His devotion was not just seen in Tempo's stories, but in his photos and videos of everything from ballet to the balloon festival.

Beyond Tempo, Romancito was the complete reporter. He worked for five years at the Taos News as a reporter and photographer before taking the reins of Tempo. His instinct for breaking news continued throughout his time with the newspaper. He regularly worked on Tempo over the weekend and so was often the first to hear breaking news over the scanner. If no reporter was available, Romancito went out and covered the story.

Romancito leaves Tempo to pursue other creative endeavors that he long had put on hold. Don't be surprised when you see more great work coming from him - whether in photography, a book or a movie.

The publication will be in good hands. Lynne Robinson, a journalist, founder of the taoStyle blog and a longtime Taos resident, will guide Tempo into its next era. She will bring new perspectives and fresh ideas while ensuring Tempo continues to cover all forms of art, by established and new artists from all walks of life.

As she settles in, let her know what you think of Tempo and send her suggestions at tempo@taosnews.com.
