Starting next week, I will move to the Newsroom and have new responsibilities as editor of the Sunday newspaper. It’s part of many moves at The News & Observer as staffers change roles to improve the newspaper’s content and the way we cover the region in print and on the Internet.
My move is a return to what I did before becoming a rookie sportswriter at 43. Then I was an editor who wanted to write. Now I’m writer who is needed to edit.
