David Dishman named executive editor of the Fort Collins Coloradoan


David Dishman, business, growth and development editor at the Austin (Texas) American-Statesman, has been named the Coloradoan’s new executive editor. Dishman replaces Eric Larsen, who left in January to become executive editor of the Indianapolis Star, part of the USA TODAY Network.

Sarah Kyle has served as interim editor since Larsen’s departure.

Dishman, a Colorado native, graduated from the University of Missouri and has worked as a reporter and editor in newsrooms in McAlester, Oklahoma; Oklahoma City; and Austin. He earned a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Central Oklahoma in 2018, which, he said, helped sharpen his leadership skills and added depth to his coverage and understanding of the corporate world.
