It’s by now a familiar HR refrain at the Orange County Register: a reporter who was once with the publication comes back to help Aaron Kushner build out the brand. The latest journalist to fit into this category is Dan Beucke (pictured), who covered technology, airlines and fast food at the paper after graduating from Cal State Fullerton.
