A business editor working hard
Dave Dreeszen, the business editor of the Sioux City Journal in Iowa, has been working hard lately.
A story on the paper’s site states, “Besides his regular duties, Dreeszen took on a greater leadership role by spearheading the 2011 Progress section, said editor Mitch Pugh, who nominated him for the award.
“In addition to writing some two dozens stories for the five Progress sections, Dreeszen assigned and edited other reporters’ stories, as well as contributions from freelancers.
“‘Everyone sacrifices to make Progress successful, but without Dave’s hard work, our sections would not have been nearly as robust as they were,’ Pugh wrote in his nomination letter.
“During that period, several significant business stories also broke. Most notably, Dreeszen wrote a breaking, exclusive story on Sioux City’s plans for the former John Morrell site.
“Dreeszen, who received his bachelor’s degree from Central College at Pella, Iowa, joined the Journal news staff as a general assignment and political reporter in 1989. He was named city hall reporter in 1993 and business editor in 1998.”
