Samantha Dunn was named editor of Coast magazine, according to the Southern California News Group, which oversees 11 daily newspapers, several magazines and other entities in Southern California, including the Orange County Register.
Coast is a monthly magazine that celebrates Orange County’s lifestyle and inspiring people.
Dunn is a journalist, author, dramatist and screenwriter. She most recently served as Coast’s associate editor and succeeds Sherry Stern, who’s retiring.
The Southern California News Group was formed after Digital First Media acquired the Register and its sister publication, the Riverside-based Press-Enterprise, in a bankruptcy auction from former owner Freedom Communications.
