Kate Parry to Be Star Tribune’s Public Editor

Kate Parry, a long time public journalism advocate at the St. Paul Pioneer Press, will become the Readers’ Representative at the Minneapolis Star Tribune in December.

She writes in an email:

I’ve had 14 fascinating years directing politics coverage over at the Pioneer Press, but this was too much of an opportunity to pass up. I’ll be able to write about all of the issues that concern newspaper readers and journalists, at a time when our credibility is under fire. It’s exciting and a bit daunting all at once.

Star Tribune story says:

She replaces Lou Gelfand, who left the newspaper in May after 23 years. Gelfand, 81, later filed an age discrimination suit and a similar complaint with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Minnesota Department of Human Rights.
