It is with great pleasure that I announce the appointment of Rene Sanchez as Editor and Senior Vice President of the Star Tribune, effective Friday, October 11th. We are extremely fortunate to have a journalist of Rene’s caliber here in our newsroom and he is a natural choice to become our next Editor.Rene joined the Star Tribune as a writer in 2004 and nine months later was named Sunday Editor, with responsibility for the paper’s most important edition. After several years in that role, Rene was named Deputy Managing Editor and ultimately Managing Editor in January 2008. In that role, he has overseen the Metro, Business and Sports departments as well as special projects and investigative work. Rene helped conceive the idea for and led the investigative project on local day care which won the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for local reporting. As our Managing Editor, he has worked closely for nearly six years with Nancy Barnes in leading our newsroom and has been deeply involved in the company’s digital strategy and structure.
