Marta Gouger began her second stint at the Times News in October 2013, this time as editor.
She grew up in Palmerton and worked at the Times News as a general assignment reporter after graduating from Point Park University in Pittsburgh.
In 1985, she left the Times News and joined the Pocono Record as the lifestyle editor. She served in that capacity until 2007 when she was promoted to managing editor for digital news, a job that morphed into senior local editor for digital news.
She is married to Ronnie Gouger and they currently call Brodheadsville home.
When Marta is not working, she is an avid reader. Her other interests are quilting and gardening.
