The Star News, which is in North Carolina,Â is a New York Times newspaper. Si Cantwell had been the interim business editor.

Griggs wrote, “Starting at the end of January, we’ll roll out a new two-person business department. Wayne Faulkner, formerly the real estate editor at the Chicago Tribune, will be the business editor, and Sam Scott, who previously covered education for the Star-News, will be the business reporter. They’ll be responsible for coverage of local business issues: Southeastern North Carolina’s largest employers, trends in the workplace, how we spend and save money, and they’ll keep a close eye on area housing and real estate.”
