ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A new editor was named at the Orlando Sentinel.
Mark Russell, previously the Sentinel's print news manager, will lead the central Florida paper's newsroom staffers. Russell, 48, takes the position immediately, succeeding Charlotte Hall, who retired on Oct. 1.
Avido Khahaifa, senior vice president and director of content at Tribune Company's Florida papers, said Tuesday that Russell "is the chief journalist in charge."
Russell joined the Sentinel in 2004, coming from The Plain Dealer in Cleveland, Ohio, where he had been an assistant managing editor and business editor. He is president of the Missouri Publishing Association, which advises the University of Missouri journalism school, and is on the board of the Florida Society of News Editors.
