Sacramento Bee executive Lauren Gustus to become Salt Lake Tribune editor
The Salt Lake Tribune's nonprofit board announced Tuesday that Sacramento Bee Editor Lauren Gustus has been named to oversee news gathering and a newsroom staff of about 70 starting Dec. 3. She becomes the third woman to hold the post in the newspaper’s 150-year history. She will hold the title of executive editor and report directly to the board.
Board chairman Paul Huntsman said she was appointed following a national search. “It became very apparent that she is a really unique leader in this industry," he said. “We are so fortunate to have someone of her capabilities with us."
She previously worked at the Tribune as an assistant sports editor from 2004 to 2007.
