Orlando Sentinel announces new leadership


The Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel announced new leadership this month.

Nancy Meyer, publisher and general manager of the South Florida Sun Sentinel in Fort Lauderdale, will take over as publisher at the Orlando Sentinel. She previously served as publisher of the Orlando Sentinel in 2015 and 2016. Meyer remains general manager of both Florida papers.

"This is a strategic move to take two very strong Florida media properties and align them to strengthen key coverage and topics that are important to our print and digital audience,'' Meyer said.

Editor-in-chief duties will be taken over by Julie Anderson, who will add the position to her current role as editor-in-chief of the Sun Sentinel, a post she's held since March 2018.

Anderson said the company plans to add a state news team that will include editors as well as politics, environmental and public health reporters at both the Sun Sentinel and the Orlando Sentinel. The Orlando Sentinel will also be hiring an opinions editor.

The two are replacing Sentinel Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Avido Khahaifa, who is leaving the company "to pursue new opportunities."

Managing editor John Cutter is moving to a new position as director of news operations and standards, overseeing daily planning, new ventures and serving as a reader advocate. The position of managing editor is currently open.
