The Star Tribune has a new editor. Just three weeks after Nancy Barnes left Minnesota's biggest newsroom, the paper promoted managing editor Rene Sanchez to the top editorial spot. Sanchez has worked at the Star Tribune since 2004. He's been part of the management team that ushered the newsroom through the company's bankruptcy and some tense negotiations with union workers. He was part of the investigative project into home day care that earned a Pulitzer prize earlier this year.
MPR's Tom Crann talked with Rene Sanchez about the future of the Star Tribune.
