Editorial board bios
Editor in Chief
Joshua Mann is a print journalism senior and basically the big boss here at The Daily Cougar; he runs everything from what gets printed to monitoring office relations and making sure everything runs smoothly. You might know him from the two total tweets he’s made as @IamJoshMann, but you probably just know him as editor in chief at the Cougar. You can reach Josh at [email protected]
Literature junior Amanda Hilow is The Daily Cougar’s second-in-command. She works closely with our editor in chief to insure the Cougar prints the best paper it can. After interning for a semester at Houston Magazine, she now focuses all of her efforts on the Cougar. We mostly keep her around, though, because she brings us chocolate. Amanda’s Twitter is @thehighestlow and you can reach her at [email protected]
Assistant Managing Editor
Print Journalism junior Channler Hill acts as Assistant Managing Editor, which means she’s in charge of hiring and overseeing copy editors in the newsroom. In just the short time she’s been with us she has showcased her talents in all aspects of print journalism, including writing, copy editing and layout design. She also has the prettiest teeth in the office. Channler’s Twitter is @ellogovna_ and you can reach her at [email protected]
Julie Heffler is a smart cookie. She’s an honors biochemistry sophomore, but fits easily into the newsroom with a passion for journalism. Feel free to start up any conversation with her about science, news or My Little Pony — we guarantee she’ll know more than you. Julie’s Twitter is @Raelyni and you can reach her at [email protected]
Lucas Sepulveda is a creative writing senior, starting his second year at UH. Before he became opinion editor in June, he worked as a columnist, covering a variety of topics. Lucas’ Twitter is @Lucas_Sepulveda and you can reach him at [email protected]
Life & Arts Editor
Broadcast journalism sophomore Allen Le is part of the Jack J. Valenti School of Communication at UH and a proud native Houstonian.
Le graduated from Westside High School (Houston Independent School District) and aspires to be an influential media mogul who lives a tri-coastal life between Houston, Los Angeles and New York. He wants to be an active member of the publishing, radio/television/film and new multimedia industries.

Communications senior Andrew Pate comes to us from San Angelo. As our resident frat boy from Sigma Chi, he provides a professional look into tailgates, sporting events and strip-club-related humor. Don’t ask. Andrew’s Twitter is @AndyPate05 and you can reach him at [email protected]
Rebekah Stearns is our little Minnie Mouse. We often find ourselves wondering where she is, but that’s because she’s sitting quietly at her desk unlike everyone else. You can reach Rebekah at [email protected]
