San Francisco Biz Times hires Burke to cover retail/hospitality
Katie Burke is rejoining the San Francisco Business Times as a reporter covering the hospitality/food and beverage/retail beat.
Burke, a Bay Area native, had worked as a reporter intern for the Times, and spent more than two years as the commercial and residential real estate, retail and legal reporter for the San Antonio Business Journal.
“Katie did a tremendous job for us as an intern, then went on to excel as a reporter who broke news on the biggest real estate deals in San Antonio,” Patrick Chu, editor in chief of the San Francisco Business Times, said in a note to his staff. “She is a star at American City Business Journals, and I’m very happy she has decided to rejoin us in our ongoing quest to be the primary local business news source in our region.”
Burke will transfer to the San Francisco Business Times on April 17.
Burke has also written for Crittenden Research in Novato, California, and graduated from the University of Washington in 2012 with degrees in journalism and art history.
