Sacramento Bee biz editor named features editor
Cathie Anderson, the business editor for the Sacramento Bee, has been named the paper’s features editor, according to an e-mail memo from managing editor Tom Negrete.
No replacement as business editor has been named yet.
Negrete writes, “We still need to work out details on Cathie’s transition from Business and her start date in Features. During her transition, Cathie plans to attend as many Features redesign meetings as possible.
“Under Cathie’s leadership, the Business section was recognized for its overall excellence by the Society of American Business Editors and Writers. Cathie made residential real estate a centerpiece of our Business coverage and worked closely with Amy Chance to improve our coverage of the business side of state government — looking at how state government impacts businesses and the economy. Working closely with the news graphics department, Cathie introduced Business readers to a steady diet of outstanding illustrations.
“Prior to joining The Bee in 2003, before she developed a love for sushi and 50-mile bike rides, Cathie was an assistant business editor at the Dallas Morning News. And beforeÂ Dallas, Cathie was a copy editor and an award-winning designer at the Detroit News before moving into assigning editor roles in features and business.”
Anderson was recently on the SABEW board, but did not run for re-election.
