Danielle Nadler

Danielle Nadler is a truth-teller.

You may know her as the managing editor of the very newspaper you’re reading, the author of Without a Trace: The Life of Sierra Phantom, or one of the 2018 Loudoun Times-Mirror 40 under 40 honorees.

But in simple terms, Danielle Nadler is a truth-teller.

She earned a degree in print journalism at Minnesota State University and has worked for several publications across the country since then. When Leesburg Today, one of Loudoun’s two county newspapers at the time, closed down in 2014, she and a few writers created LoudounNow to keep the spirit alive.

Now, their goal is to continue keeping the community informed. “We want to shine a spotlight on what local non-profits are doing and how people can support them or what a local artist is doing… but we also are there for those late night committee meetings to make sure that the community knows what’s going on behind those closed doors.”

Nadler believes that journalism and print media can be a powerful conduit of change. And it is completely worth the long hours and weekends because she “cares so much about reporting truth.”
