Elizabeth Vassolo

Community producer
My name is Elizabeth Vassolo, and I am the community producer for the TribLocal clusters of Evanston, Skokie, Des Plaines, Park Ridge, Niles and Morton Grove.

I am here to get the news out about these communities as well as help citizen contributors get their stories, photos and events featured online and in TribLocal’s weekly print edition that is delivered with the Chicago Tribune on Thursdays and as a standalone publication on Saturdays.

I love community journalism because I get to work with new people every day. I love to tell stories and read.

If you have a story idea or any questions while posting, call me at 312-731-9567, e-mail me at evassolo@tribune.com or find me on Twitter @TribLocalLiz.

  1. Hi Karen,

    I apologize for the glitch. We just transferred all the data last night and we are quickly trying to smooth out all the hiccups. It should be fixed shortly.
