Vickie Hawver

Managing Editor

Vickie Griffith Hawver is a co-founder of Hawver’s Capitol Report.

A former Topeka Capital-Journal reporter and editor, she left the newspaper in 1991 to start Hawver News Company, a writing/editing business. When her husband, Martin Hawver, joined in 1993, the company created Hawver’s Capitol Report.

She is a past president of the Junior League of Topeka and Topeka Press Women, a 1996 graduate of Leadership Greater Topeka, and has served as an adjunct instructor in Washburn University’s mass media department.

Vickie enjoys bicycling with her husband, reading, and hanging out with their dog, Nellie-Bly, named after the 19th Century journalist Vickie read about in elementary school; then she promptly decided to become a reporter.
