Huntington, N.Y.—Floor Covering News has appointed Jacqueline Hinchcliffe as its new associate editor and digital media coordinator. In this dual role, she will be responsible for a variety of tasks, including: crafting news stories and feature articles; copyediting and proofreading content; and attending industry trade shows and events. Moreover, she will provide assistance in content creation for the FCNews website while helping engage the magazine’s audience across its various social media channels.

Prior to joining FCNews, Hinchcliffe was the co-editor of GWS Gazette, where she had a hand in everything from interviewing sources and writing articles to page layout and author recruitment. Before that, she served as staff writer for Do North magazine as well as the Cardinal Points Newspaper. She also has experience as a fashion blog writer. On the digital side, Hinchcliffe oversaw the website rebranding and social media promotional activities of Alpha Phi Sorority. She also served as director of the organization’s external events.

“Jacqui comes to FCNews with not only proven journalistic skills and experience, but she also brings a positive, enthusiastic attitude and a strong work ethic,” said Reginald Tucker, managing editor. “She’s a quick learner and possesses an inquisitive mind—traits that will help her get acclimated to the flooring industry. She also has experience in retail merchandising, which is relevant to the position.”

Hinchcliffe is eager to hit the ground running. “I’m excited to join such a dedicated and highly skilled team at FCNews, and I look forward to learning from a group with years of experience in the flooring industry,” she said. “While this industry is fairly new to me, I’m always eager to learn from those around me so I can continue to excel. I’m hopeful that my passion for journalism and unique writing style will bring a new perspective and voice to the publication.”

Hinchcliffe earned a Bachelor’s Degree in magazine journalism with a concentration in broadcasting from the State University of New York at Plattsburgh. While there she studied news writing, reporting and digital publishing.
