Wick Allison | is the editor in chief of D Magazine, which he founded in 1974. He is a Dallas native and a graduate of Highland Park High School and UT Austin. There is a better than zero chance that as you are reading this, right now, he is standing in a river in Upstate New York, fly-fishing.
Zac Crain | is a senior editor at D Magazine. He moved to Dallas in 1997, and since then, he has worked as an editor at the Dallas Observer and American Way, written for Esquire and Spin, run for Dallas mayor, written a book, and served as “glue guy” for a handful of rec-league basketball squads. Scouting report: can’t go right, but he’s a creative passer and semi-accurate set shooter.
Jason Heid | is D‘s online editorial director. Though originally from the Land of Lincoln, he considers beautiful Denton, Texas, his hometown and graduated with a degree in history from Trinity University. A former newspaper publisher and editor, he’s worked at People Newspapers, the Dallas Morning News, and too many other suburban weeklies to name here. He’s been kicked out of Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, pushed out of a bar in Flagstaff, Arizona, and screamed out of a convenience store in Budapest, Hungary.
Glenn Hunter | is executive editor of D CEO. A native of Santa Barbara, California, Glenn’s a journalism graduate of Arizona State University and a former editor of the Dallas Business Journal. His claim to fame is hanging with the famous (Donald Trump, Harold Simmons, Tim Rogers) and the infamous (Larry Flynt, Merle Haggard, Tim Rogers). Some say that’s why he wears sunglasses 24/7, but the truth is he’s hiding all the lines around his eyes.
Liz Johnstone |is the events editor at D Magazine. She grew up in Irving, Texas, but took off for New York City after high school. She returned to Dallas with a degree in journalism and dramatic writing from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. She also brought back one of the best mugging stories you’ll ever hear. Among other things, she’s been a puppet (in a play), a pauper (the Big Apple makes everyone poor), a pirate (for Halloween), and a substitute teacher (for real). Oh yeah, and she’s a former D intern.
Dan Koller | is the managing editor of the D empire’s three weekly newspapers: Park Cities People, Preston Hollow People, and Oak Cliff People. Previously he worked at the Dallas Morning News. His first employer was a Baskin-Robbins at the corner of Mockingbird and Abrams. Between those gigs, he probably sold you popcorn at the AMC Glen Lakes.
Laura Kostelny | is awesome. (She is also the executive editor of D Home.)
Michael J. Mooney | is a staff writer at D Magazine. He grew up in the suburbs of Dallas, studied English and anthropology at the UT Austin, got his master’s degree in journalism from the UNT, and then, for four years, lived in an exotic foreign land he calls “South Florida.” He has written for the Dallas Morning News, Miami New Times, Outside, and GQ, and his work has appeared in both the Best American Crime Reporting and the Best American Sports Writing anthologies. In his spare time, he grows atavistic facial hair.
Nancy Nichols | is a senior editor at D Magazine. Born in Dallas and somewhat educated at UT Austin, she has a degree in political economics. She did PR for the Dallas Blackhawks, was the GM of the Dallas Diamonds, and has worked for more than 20 years in and around the food business. She has written for D about restaurateur Tristan Simon, hockey great Mike Modano, and the Rockfish oyster deaths. Nancy has in her cubicle a bunch of menus and a folding chair from the Ottawa Senators.
Krista Nightengale | is the managing editor of D Magazine. After an arduous childhood of bottle-feeding calves and wrecking grain carts on the family farm in Oklahoma, she attended the University of Oklahoma, where she majored in journalism and minored in religious studies. Then she made it to the big city, where she worked for People Newspapers. After two and a half years at the paper, she wiggled her way into D. Nothing of interest sits on her desk, as clutter makes her itchy and nervous (and she lost her Halo figurine in the move to the new building).
Tim Rogers | is the editor of D Magazine. He came to Dallas from Los Angeles in 1976 and graduated from Cistercian and the University of Notre Dame. He was an editor and columnist for The Met and, for a time, he co-hosted Early Merge With Tim & Yvonne on 93.3 FM. Tim has written for D about swimming across White Rock Lake and about Mark Cuban’s threat to “slice [his] f—ing nuts off.” In 2012 he won a National Magazine Award for his profile of Barrett Brown.
Peter Simek | is arts editor for D Magazine and dmagazine.com. Born in New York and raised in its shadow on the concrete plains of Long Island, he left the East Coast to attend the University of Dallas. After a brief stint in Rome, Italy, where he called himself a freelance writer, he returned to Dallas to join the staff at People Newspapers. He has covered Dallas City Hall, helped launch Oak Cliff People, and written for D Magazine and D CEO on topics ranging from soccer hooligans and insurance detectives to the pedestrian friendliness of the Dallas Arts District. Prior to joining D, he launched and edited Renegade Bus, an online arts and culture journal.
