WNYC Names New David Lewis Metro Editor

David Lewis has been named WNYC’s new metro editor. Lewis has taught at CUNY’s Journalism School for the past seven years, and prior to that served as an associate producer at CBS News, and a correspondent at NY1.

In a memo obtained by Capital New York, Jim Schachter, WNYC’s VP for news, cited Lewis’ extensive experience as one of the reasons for tapping him as metro editor:

In that brief moment when Pete Hamill was editor of the Daily News and Bill Clinton was president of the United States, he covered a controversial stab at addressing income inequality (called, at the time, welfare reform). At NY1, he covered Hillary Clinton’s first Senate campaign. Working with Ed Bradley at ’60 Minutes,’ he was one of the producers on a profile of a new police chief (of Los Angeles) named Bill Bratton.

Lewis’ appointment is effective February 10.
