Congrats to APME board member Cate Barron who succeeds David Newhouse, editor of the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Patriot-News. Newhouse is leaving the Harrisburg, Pa. newspaper after 11 years, the paper reported.
The Patriot-News said in a story on its website that Newhouse, 56, will be leaving later this month for Advance Digital, the digital arm of the newspaper's parent company, Advance Publications. His job will be to ensure the quality of new ways that journalism serves readers and the community.
Barron was previously the paper's executive editor and is a 27-year veteran of The Patriot-News. Assistant Managing Editor Mike Feeley will become managing editor.
Last month, reporter Sara Ganim and members of The Patriot-News staff won the Pulitzer Prize for local reporting for their coverage of a child sex-abuse scandal at Penn State University that led to criminal charges against a former assistant coach and two administrators and toppled legendary football coach Joe Paterno.
