Ted Evanoff, a longtime reporter at The Commercial Appeal in Memphis, has been named its business editor.

A story on its website states, “Evanoff, 60, has been a reporter and editor specializing in economic development and business since he graduated in 1977 from the University of Michigan, where his focus was history and economics. He served for several months as the newspaper’s interim Business Editor.

“‘While Ted has a strong background in business and economics, he also has a deep understanding of Memphis and its institutions,’’ said editor Louis Graham, announcing the decision to the staff this morning. ‘He’s bringing that knowledge to bear in the daily decisions of what topics we cover and how we cover them.’

“Evanoff worked as a business writer for The CA from 1989 to 1994. He moved on to cover the auto industry for the Detroit Free Press, then the economy for the Indianapolis Star before returning to Memphis in 2011.

“He is co-author of At the Crossroads: Middle America and the Battle to Save the Car Industry, an examination of the Detroit bailout published in 2009.”
