For those I have yet to meet, my name is Bailey Vassalli. I’m the newest addition to the staff here at the Branson Tri-Lakes News, and I am so excited to be here.

I’m taking over as sports editor, and I only hope I’m able to fill the shoes Jim Connell left behind.

When Jim reached out a few weeks back, encouraging me to apply for his position at the Branson Tri-Lakes News, I have to admit – I was a bit nervous. 

I’m no stranger to sports, but it’s been a while since I’ve had the opportunity to cover them. But, after some encouragement from my family and friends, I sent over my resume, and here I am.

I’m a native of the Ozarks, and spent the first eight years of my life in Salem before moving to Rolla for the next four years. After that, I left the only region I had ever called home. I spent the next six years moving around the country – a year in Kansas, two years in Maryland and six in Washington.  

As thankful as I was for the opportunities every move presented, I knew the Ozarks was still my home. My senior year of high school, I applied to Missouri State University. 

Throughout my senior year, I served as co-editor in chief of the high school yearbook. It was then I decided journalism was my passion. After an opportunity arose to write a season preview for my high school’s basketball team, the editor of the local newspaper asked if I’d like to intern for them. Before I knew it, I was seeing my byline in the Snohomish County Tribune.
