Matthew F. Wilson Named Managing Editor Of The Chronicle
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) _ Matthew F. Wilson has been named managing editor of the San Francisco Chronicle, the newspaper said in today’s editions.
Wilson’s promotion from his position as special assistant to the executive editor was effective today.
As special assistant, he played a major role in the expansion and redesign of the newspaper’s news and feature sections last year.
Wilson, a 32-year-old native of San Francisco and graduate of the University of California-Berkeley, began his career at the Chronicle in 1975 as a copy boy. He became a copy editor in June 1978.
Wilson helped direct installation of the newspaper’s computerized editing system in 1982 and 1983. He has since been involved in seminars on technology issues for the American Society of Newspaper Editors and The Associated Press Managing Editors Association.
Wilson’s father, Kenneth E. Wilson, was managing editor of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat and is the Chronicle’s assistant to the publisher for systems.
