Preston Turegano is a former award-winning San Diego Union-Tribune writer who covered the inner workings of local, state and national arts institutions, including government support of the arts. When needed, he reviewed symphony, opera, theater and dance performances, and art exhibits. He also covered local TV and radio, network and cable TV programming, and wrote feature articles such as travel stories, personality profiles, and celebrity gossip tidbits. For the San Diego Tribune, he was a general assignment news reporter who had to know something about everything, but not everything about something. Before his Union-Tribune employment, Turegano was a U.S. Navy journalist. More recently, he was public relations manager for the San Diego-based Mainly Mozart for two years.
