PBS has tapped Erin Texeira as senior editor and Frontline’s director of local journalism. As per the announcement:

“In this role, she will oversee the series’ Local Journalism Initiative, which, with the generous support of the Knight Foundation and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, aims to bolster local and regional news organizations that are conducting investigative journalism projects in their communities.

“Texeira will identify and seek out journalism partners in communities where local news organizations have been hit hard by financial pressures and the challenges of reporting during the COVID-19 pandemic. She will also have a central role in overseeing work stemming from the local partnerships across multiple platforms — from digital stories, to digital videos, to long-form documentaries.”

Previously, Texeira wrote for the Los Angeles Times, Newsday, The Baltimore Sun and The Associated Press. She has also worked with nonprofit organizations, including the Brooklyn Children’s Theatre.
