Rodney Robinson has been serving as Information Technology Director for The News Tribune since 1999. As such, he cares for all of the technology needs of the company. Robinson's first experience with the publishing industry began as a teenage boy, delivering weekly advertisements for Advertising Addressing and Postal Service in Bakersfield, California.
Later, he worked as a paperboy for the Bakersfield Californian. After moving to Sacramento, California in his late teens, he started working for The Sacramento Bee, replenishing newsstands throughout the city. Before long, he moved inside and worked first in the newsroom and then in the computer center where he found his niche and gained experience from the ground up. He now has over 25 years in the business and is an active member of the Newspaper Association of America.
Volunteer activities include membership on the board of The Broadway Center for The Performing Arts in Tacoma, part of the Patient Visiting Group at St. Joseph's Hospital for the Franciscan Health Systems' Transfusion-Free Medicine and Surgery Program, and community outreach by way of personal visits to many neighborhoods as a minister of Jehovah's Witnesses.
He and his wife Lorraine enjoy fishing and tennis and have a married son, Rodney.
