The regional newspaper Tubantia has found a new editor-in-chief: Daan Bonenkamp. Bonenkamp is now head of communications in D66’s parliamentary group. Previously, Bonenkamp worked briefly for De Telegraaf. “I am a child of the region and have always maintained a strong bond with Twente. This step therefore also feels like coming home. At my parents’ house, De Twentsche Courant Tubantia fell on the mat every day, says Bonenkamp to the newspaper.

Moving January 2023 Lennart Zandbergen for Financial Daily for New York City. “As a correspondent, I will report on everything to do with American companies, the economy and the financial markets, and will therefore also travel a lot through the fascinating America,” he writes on LinkedIn.

In front of Wieneke van Vucht changes after twenty years. “The years of talk shows, documentaries (series), radio and podcasts have given me countless beautiful adventures, colleagues to keep in your heart forever and experiences to remember”, writes Van Vucht. “Now is the time to pass on that knowledge and experience to a new generation of journalists. I have been teaching at the Journalism School at the Hogeschool Utrecht for a few weeks now and it is fantastic!”

After 30 years, it is time for a new step in the career Angelique art. Kunst worked for the regional newspaper TC Tubantia for years and gained national fame for his ongoing research into the self-proclaimed cyber expert Rian van Rijbroek who became involved in Gerard Sanderink’s business empire. “Transfer news: As of November 1, I am leaving Tubantia and starting to work for the new research editors in ADR (AD and the regional newspapers). There, of course, I get all the space again for the Sanderink file, but also for great new research cases”, writes Kunst. “I will miss my good colleagues from Tubantia very much, it is a really nice club to work with. But I couldn’t pass up this new challenge.”
