About the Author
Tucson native Robert Edward Zucker, born in the mid-1950s, has been publishing for nearly four decades. He has launched several Tucson, Arizona tabloid newspapers and authored dozens of manuscripts that are now being printed and digitized. While publishing over monthly 200 newspaper editions, between 1978 and 1994, Robert also organized numerous local entertainment events, concerts, movie screenings and community projects. Originally hired by the Tucson YWCA in 1977, Robert developed Youth Alternatives (1978-1979), the first newspaper for Tucson teenagers and continued the publication as Youth Awareness Press (1979-1981), and later as Tucson Teen, Tucson Teen (1981-1990) long after the original funding sources ended for the non-profit newspaper. The Magazine (1982-1985) and the Entertainment Magazine (1985-1994) published for an older audience with a focus on local entertainment. In January 1995, the Internet version of the Entertainment Magazine On Line (EMOL.org) was launched as one of the first Arizona publications to have a web presence. Robert spent a dozen years teaching desktop publishing and web publishing at the University of Arizona Department of Journalism (now School of Journalism). He spent eight years at Pima Community College serving as an instructor, developed an Internet journalism lab and spent several years as adviser for the Aztec Press, the college newspaper, as well as developed the online version of the Aztec Press (1998) and launched the UA Journalism Department (1995) and Aztec Press (1998) web sites.
