Longtime editor Rick Nelson named Post and Courier opinion editor
The Post and Courier in Charleston, S.C., has a new face in charge of its opinion pages. Charles Rowe recently retired after a decade as editorial page editor, and newsroom veteran Rick Nelson has taken over the role.
Nelson was selected after a national search, said Publisher P.J. Browning.
"What we kept coming back to was we wanted somebody who knew South Carolina, who knew the issues we face in Charleston and in our region," she said. "We came to the conclusion that we had the perfect person sitting right here in the newsroom. We felt Rick had everything we were looking for."
