We’re delighted to announce that Todd Stone, assistant managing editor/business at the Star Tribune in Minneapolis, will be joining the Houston Chronicle as deputy managing editor for business and sports. Todd is an exceptional journalist, whose career has taken him all over the country. He has been at the Star Tribune since 2010, overseeing a staff of 21. During his years in Minneapolis, his department won the SABEW general excellence award twice, as well as the Loeb Award for breaking news in 2012.

Prior to joining the Star Tribune, he was the business and enterprise editor at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, regional editor of the Denver Post, city editor of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, and he even had a stint at our sister paper in Beaumont as news editor. Todd hails from Houston and is a die-hard Aggie: he has an undergraduate degree in journalism as well as an MBA from Texas A&M.

Business and sports are natural combination in Houston, where sports is one of the biggest businesses in town. Todd, who will also have some responsibility for day-to-day operations, will start around March 1. He is married to Kim McGuire, a reporter at the Star Tribune, and they have two young sons. Please join us in welcoming Todd home to Houston.
