Roger Buoen, co-managing editor of MinnPost.com, writes about the website’s hiring of Liz Fedor and other changes to its business coverage.
Buoen writes, “We are delighted to announce that Liz Fedor, an experienced journalist who has covered Minnesota business and politics for years, will be joining MinnPost. Beginning Thursday, Liz will report and write a weekly post that will examine the intersection between business and government, policy and politics.
“It’s a subject Liz knows well. While at the Star Tribune, she reported on the airline industry and manufacturing sector and oversaw the newspaper’s coverage of agriculture, consumer issues and the housing market. Before that she was the Grand Forks Herald’s editorial page editor and covered Minnesota politics for the Herald. She has also been a columnist and radio show co-host. Liz currently works for a Twin Cities foundation.
“And we are making other changes in our business coverage. We are dropping the short news items of Business Agenda and MedCity News, but we will continue to do occasional in-depth business stories by such well-sourced and informed journalists as Dave Beal and Brad Allen.”
