Martin G. Reynolds has been promoted from managing editor to editor of the Oakland Tribune after 13 years at the paper. "It feels pretty surreal," Reynolds, 39, said of being named editor. "When you think about following in the footsteps of a lot of the great journalists who have come through the Tribune, it's amazing."
The Berkeley native said he would like to see the Tribune reaffirm its ties to Oakland. "I also believe, as a newspaper, we have a responsibility to present some solutions to problems through a solution-oriented approach to reporting," Reynolds said in a story announcing his appointment.
Pete Wevurski, who previously held the title of editor, will continue as managing editor of Bay Area News Group-East Bay, which includes the Tribune. Reynolds will continue to serve as an assistant managing editor for news for BANG-EB. (Photo credit: Oakland Tribune file, 2006)
