You’re reading Meet The Shorthorn, a series of short articles explaining our processes and providing clarity for our readers.
During the summer semesters, The Shorthorn has about 25 staff members, 8 of them are editors. This semester, there are two campus editors instead of one news editor and one life and entertainment editor. The campus editors are responsible for content from all sections: news, life and sports. The editors assign and edit content, as well as hiring and managing their staff members.
Get to know the summer 2022 editor team below.
Dang Le is the incoming editor-in-chief and a journalism senior. He manages the entire newsroom and is responsible for the content direction for the publication before publishing. Le also hired all the other editors. He is an international student from Vietnam and loves to write op-ed and entertainment articles. He enjoys watching movies, listening to music and reading magazines during his free time.

Erick Estrada is the incoming campus editor and an English senior. He ensures stories are correct, clear and concise while helping reporters develop their skills. Estrada edits articles and engages with staff to produce the best content possible. Although he spends much of his time under the University Center, Estrada likes to occasionally pick up my guitar, download PC games that he’ll leave half-finished or buy more books that he wishes he had enough to read.
