Chicago Trib biz section hires Crain’s AME for new position
Andrea Hanis, an assistant managing editor at Crain’s Chicago Business, has been hired to be planning editor — a new position — of the Chicago Tribune business section, reports Robert Feder of Time Out Chicago.
“‘Crain’s is a great place to work, and I’ve been very happy here,’ Hanis, 41, told me Monday. ‘The Tribune just offered an opportunity that really dovetailed out of what I was already doing, where I felt like I could contribute right away, but also learn and grow. I’m not someone who loves the process of change — it’s hard, especially when you’re leaving a great situation — but I also believe you can’t just hide and try to stay safe.’
“Michael Lev, the Tribune’s assistant managing editor of business, told staffers in a memo that Hanis ‘will work with all members of our department, as well as other colleagues across the newsroom, to help ensure that the Tribune’s daily business report is a comprehensive must-read.’
“Her hiring is part of an editorial expansion at the Tribune, including the addition of pages to the business section and increased staff. The newspaper also unveiled its redesigned home page Monday. ‘Work will continue the rest of the night and into tomorrow,’ tweeted Bill Adee, vice president of digital development and operations.”
