The Star-Tribune’s general manager named Joshua Wolfson as the newsroom’s top editor on Monday.
Wolfson, 38, worked as a managing editor of the paper for almost two years before his promotion. He started at the Star-Tribune in 2007 as a crime reporter and later covered health, community issues and the arts.
“His understanding and knowledge of local issues and people will benefit readers,” Star-Tribune general manager Dale Bohren said in a statement. “Newsroom leadership is vital, and Josh Wolfson’s demonstrated abilities to develop and manage top reporting talent positions the Star-Tribune to serve Wyoming readers well into the future.”
Bohren became the Star-Tribune’s general manager in May and oversees all Star-Tribune operations including news, sales, distribution and the press room. He previously worked as the editor of the Star-Tribune and the Casper Journal. Lee Enterprises, which owns the Star-Tribune, recently named Eugene Jackson the paper’s regional publisher after the former publisher moved to Iowa.
Wolfson grew up in Anchorage, Alaska, and Los Angeles before earning a journalism degree from San Francisco State University. He moved to Casper more than 10 years ago after working for publications in northern California.
“I’m excited to lead our amazing staff of journalists,” Wolfson said in a statement. “They tell the stories that matter to people who live and work in Wyoming. I know how important the Star-Tribune is to our state, and I’m deeply honored to serve as editor.”
