Dallas Morning News assistant managing editor for business Edward Dufner will work at the daily newspaper until Feb. 3. He is joining Bloomberg News in Dallas, where he will edit transportation stories.
Dufner, who joined the Dallas daily 22 years ago as a copy editor, headed the project team that worked on “Dallas at the Tipping Point,” a 2004 section examining the city’s growth challenges.
He also served for seven years as the paper’s national editor and, in 1992 and 1996, oversaw the national political desk. Dufner is a 1982 graduate of Northwestern. His wife is also a Morning News editor.
In 2004, the Morning News business section was one of three winners in the breaking news category for giant newspapers. Judges had this to say about the section: “Donald Carty’s resignation as CEO of American Airlines was not an easy tale to tell. The fact of his resignation obviously was important, but the full impact of his resignation was impossible to know. His resignation did not mean that the company would avoid bankruptcy. It did not mean that the labor turmoil would end. The resignation story was part of a much bigger, much more complex story that was still unfolding. The Dallas Morning News did a masterful job of reporting all of the stories, and telling them all with great clarity, perspective and style.”
