Veteran journalist Dan Nielsen is the Traverse City Record-Eagle’s new business editor.

A story on its website states, “Nielsen, whose journalism career spans more than two decades, is a longtime Record-Eagle employee who spent the past five years in the newsroom as a page designer, copy editor and design hub supervisor. He succeeds Glenn Puit, who accepted an offer to be managing editor of the McAlester (Okla.) News-Capital, a Record-Eagle sister publication.

“‘Dan’s a smart, experienced journalist, a solid writer, and a good co-worker,’ said Mike Tyree, the Record-Eagle’s executive editor. ‘We’re happy to have Dan on board to continue the Record-Eagle’s lead role in local business coverage.’

“Nielsen’s background in business reporting included a stint as business editor at the daily newspaper in Durango, Colo., and at the Marquette Mining Journal. He moved to Traverse City in 1989 to write and design pages for the Record-Eagle.”
