‘Chicago Sun-Times’ Emphasizes Digital Shifts

To say we live in a digital world is to put it mildly. Yesterday the Chicago Sun-Times announced a new managing editor and plans to shuffle around its newsroom as it emphasizes digital news.

According to Crain’s, in a memo to staff Jim Kirk indicated, “We are no longer a newspaper company. The editor-in-chief added, ”We are a technology company that happens to publish a newspaper. We deliver content. And we will deliver content on many platforms and in ways that we haven’t yet fully considered.”

Craig Newman has been appointed managing editor and will oversee day-to-day operations of news. Plus, in the memo Kirk pointed out he’s going to move all of Sun-Times Media “to a digital-first focus.”

As for other appointments, the former managing editor of the Sun-Times, Andrew Herrmann is now the editor-in-chief of the West Suburban publishing group. Linda Bergstrom has been appointed deputy managing editor for features content for the Chicago Sun-Times and Sun-Times Media. Chris de Luca takes the reigns of deputy managing editor for news and sports; and Meg Moore will be the editor of the new Pulse section.
