Matt Olberding, a business editor and reporter at the Lincoln Journal Star, has been promoted to associate managing editor.

His tweet reads:

“It sounds more important than it is; essentially I’m one of several assistant editors who help guide coverage and produce the print and online versions of the newspaper. You’ll still see my byline, but it will likely be less and less frequent over the coming weeks as the transition takes place.

“The job of business reporter will be filled, although the person who follows me may not necessarily do all the same things. I’m excited for a new challenge but also will miss being “the Biz Buzz guy.” You can still feel free to send me business news tips, though.”

Previously, Olberding freelanced for SmartBrief, Motley Fool and Turbo Tax. He has covered numerous beats, including real estate, taxes, insurance, investing, personal finance and health and fitness.

Olberding has a B.A. in journalism from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Be sure to congratulate Olberding on Twitter.
