Strib gets new editor

Posted at 2:58 PM on February 14, 2007 by Bill Wareham

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Nancy Barnes, the Star Tribune's deputy
managing editor for content, has been named the newspaper's editor
and senior vice president for news, the Star Tribune announced

Barnes will replace Anders Gyllenhall, who announced in December
that he was leaving to become executive director of the Miami

Barnes, 45, takes over about a month and a half after The
McClatchy Co. announced that it would sell the Star Tribune to the
private equity firm Avista Capital Partners for $530 million. At
the time, McClatchy said was selling its largest newspaper in part
because it can take a tax loss, and because the newspaper's growth
had tapered off.

Barnes joined the Star Tribune in 2003 as assistant managing
editor for business. In 2005 she became deputy managing editor,
focusing on expansion and improvement of business coverage,
enterprise reporting and the Sunday paper.
