Joseph B. Cahill, editor of Crain’s Chicago Business since 2005, will begin writing a weekly business column for the paper beginning in January and step down from his editing duties.
“In more than six years as editor, Mr. Cahill has overseen numerous changes at the publication, including the expansion of Crain’s news coverage on the Web. Under his watch, the publication won more than 100 journalism awards and broadened the paper’s investigative footprint.
“‘We accomplished a lot in the last six-and-a-half years, and I’ll always treasure my experience leading the best team of journalists in Chicago,’ Mr.Cahill said. ‘But after so many years in management, I’m ready to get back on the front lines of reporting. This new column is a unique opportunity to focus all my energy and attention on my favorite subject — Chicago business.'”
