Susan Rovegno began serving The Sealy News and the Katy Times as their new publisher on Aug. 24.
Rovegno graduated from O’Donnell (Texas) High School and received her BA in mass communication from Abilene Christian University and her MA in journalism from The University of Texas at Austin. She began her long newspaper career at The Houston Post where she worked in distribution, audience development, and both retail and classified ad sales.
From there she moved to USA TODAY where she spent 12 years, during which she and her family moved to Phoenix, Ariz. Rovegno remained with Gannett (parent company of USA TODAY) for eight more years with assignments in White Plains, NY, and Salem, Ore. Rovegno returned to Phoenix, working for the East Valley Tribune, before coming back to Texas – first in Victoria and then to Houston. Rovegno has worked for Houston Community Newspapers (now a division of the Houston Chronicle) and Community Impact.
Rovegno and her husband of 40 years, Jack, reside in Katy with two very spoiled cats. Their son Chuck and his family live in Arizona.
“I am delighted to be working in Sealy, with its family-friendly atmosphere and charm,” Susan said. “As Katy and Houston continue to expand westward, there is a lot of exciting news on the horizon for our area. Sealy is definitely the place to be right now. There are challenges to be sure, but nothing that we Texans cannot overcome.”
