Andrea Zelinski has joined Travel Weekly's editorial staff as senior editor covering the cruise beat.
An award-winning journalist, Zelinski brings 15 years of experience providing both breaking news and longer, explanatory pieces for the Houston Chronicle, Associated Press and Texas Monthly, among other media outlets. She holds a masters degree in public affairs reporting from the University of Illinois.
"We're delighted that such a seasoned reporter is covering cruise for us," said Travel Weekly editor in chief Arnie Weissmann. "It's a critically important beat for our readers, and Andrea's background and experience are a great match for this assignment."
With Zelinski's hire, Johanna Jainchill will return full-time to her role as Travel Weekly news editor. Jainchill filled in as acting cruise editor during much of the pandemic.
