BALTIMORE (AP) _ Bill Marimow, the managing editor of The (Baltimore) Sun and a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, was named editor of the paper Monday.
He replaces John Carroll, who is taking over as editor of the Los Angeles Times.
Carroll, who served nine years as editor of The Sun, brought Marimow to the staff in 1993, said Carol Dreyfuss, a spokeswoman for the newspaper. The two had worked together at The Philadelphia Inquirer.
Marimow’s two Pulitzer Prizes came during his tenure at the Inquirer. He shared the Pulitzer Prize in 1978 for stories on police violence that he and a colleague wrote and Carroll edited. In 1985, after serving as a Neiman Fellow at Harvard, Marimow won the Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting for stories on civil rights violations by the Philadelphia police’s K-9 unit.
Marimow, 52, joined The Sun as metro editor in 1993 and rose to managing editor two years later.
The Sun and Los Angeles Times are both Times Mirror Co. papers. Tribune Co. recently announced it is taking over Times Mirror and Monday announced the appointment of Carroll as editor and John Puerner, publisher of The Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel, as publisher of the Los Angeles Times.
