Fla. Newspaper Reorganizes Staff

March 1, 2001

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) _ Jane Healy, managing editor of The Orlando Sentinel, will return to her former job as editorial page editor under a newsroom reorganization.

A search is under way to find a replacement for Healy, who became managing editor eight years ago.

As part of the changes, which take effect March 19, current editorial page editor Manning Pynn will become the paper’s ombudsman. In the new position of public editor, Pynn will try to build bridges between the paper and its readers.

Healy, who won a Pulitzer Prize for editorial writing, said she looks forward to leading the Sentinel’s 12-member editorial board.

The reorganization will provide for more aggressive news coverage with an emphasis on subjects of special interest to central Florida, according to Tim Franklin, who became the paper’s top editor in December.

The Orlando Sentinel is owned by Chicago-based Tribune Co., which also owns the South Florida Sun-Sentinel in Fort Lauderdale.
