Marjory Raymer

Marjory Raymer served as the founding publisher and managing editor of Flintside. She launched Flintside in March 2017 with a coalition of support from Flint's leading advocates and helped it grow into the Flint area's largest nontraditional news outlet with an online readership of more than 180,000 users.

An award winning journalist with more more than 20 years experience, she started her career as a political reporter with short stints at the Ionia Sentinel Standard and Traverse City Record Eagle, before coming to Flint in 2000. She climbed through the ranks and became the first woman to serve as editor of The Flint Journal. She went on to serve as news director for MLive and all 10 of its newsrooms statewide. Prior to launching Flintside, Raymer served as head of marketing and media relations at the University of Michigan-Flint. She left Flintside in November 2019 to serve as director of communications for the City of Flint.
