Metro editor

As far away as Mason City, Iowa it's reported
Gary Metro, former editor of the Globe Gazette, has been named editor of the Southern Illinoisan. He currently is senior managing editor of The Times of Northwest Indiana in Munster. All three newspapers are owned by Lee Enterprises Inc.
Apparently a results guy whose newspapers have won awards under his watch, he says "I’m looking forward to leading a newsroom that will pursue hard news and serve as a watchdog for the public. We’ll be tough-minded in our coverage, but we’ll also stress accuracy, honesty and fair play."

I wonder: Does this mean a change in editorial policy for The Southern? Will Mr. Metro be blogger like his predecessor? I doubt it. He doesn't seem to be a writer, although his wife Debbie free-lances.

"Metro is married to Debbie Luebke Metro, an award-winning reporter for the Kenosha News.

"A Chicago native, Metro grew up in Rockford, IL, and graduated from Valparaiso University in Valparaiso, IN. He was the Sunday editor at the Oshkosh Northwestern before joining The Journal Times' staff."
