Times Union names new managing editor


Brendan J. Lyons, a veteran journalist whose stories have ranged from police misconduct to ethical misdeeds at the state Capitol, has been named managing editor for enterprise and investigations at the Times Union in Albany, New York.

In addition to managing investigative projects across the newsroom, Lyons will continue to direct the work of the paper's Capitol reporters and develop a training curriculum for investigative work that will be applied across the newsroom and beyond. He'll also help develop investigative projects with other Hearst papers.

In addition, Lyons will oversee the work of a new position at the Times Union: the two-year Joseph T. Lyons Fellowship, which will bring in an early-career reporter with a special mission to create investigative journalism covering overlooked communities. The fellowship is named for Lyons' father, who served as the Times Union's publisher through the 1980s.
