Reorganization in Atlanta results in new titles
A reorganization in the newsroom of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution means new job titlesÂ for the top editors in the business news department, according to an internal list of new titles.
The reorganization has created two content departments. One is called “News & Info” and the other is called “Enterprise.”
Henry Unger, who was the deputy business editor, is now the “business and sports editor” on the “Enterprise” team. The reorganization is being phased in, and Unger starts his new job on July 9.
Dean Anason and Gertha Coffee, who had been assistant business editors, are now “line editor/business” underÂ “News & Info.” Another assistant business editor, Scott Thurston, is now the “Dispatch desk editor.”
There are also two production departments. One is called “Print” and the other is called “Digital.”
On the “Print” desk, Bill Steiden is the new “Nation/World/Business editor.” In addition, Susan Wells is listed as the “Homefinder/Homestyle editor.” Wells was the paper’s business editor back in the 1990s and the early part of this decade before going to the editorial page.
Earlier this year, Mark Braykovich left his spot as business editor to become a PR person for an Atlanta law firm. He was replaced by Dorrie Toney, a former assistant business editor, on an interim basis. Toney is now on the paper’s “Digital” desk as “senior coordinator of initiatives and strategic channels.”
