Former PiPresser, 2 others named to leadership posts at Star Tribune

The Star Tribune on Wednesday named Maria Reeve managing editor for daily news.

Reeve, who previously worked as a reporter and editor at the Pioneer Press, will oversee the Minneapolis-based newspaper’s daily news operations, including a new team focused on breaking and trending news, according to a news release issued Wednesday.

A native of Charleston, S.C., Reeve served as assistant managing editor of news at the Star Tribune before leaving the Twin Cities in 2019 to join the management team at the Houston Chronicle, eventually becoming the first person of color to serve as that newspaper’s executive editor.

“I am beyond thrilled to be back in this newsroom and back in the Twin Cities,” Reeve said in the news release. “I’m looking forward to working with the many talented journalists across our newsroom — all with the aim of serving this community.”

Also on Wednesday, the Star Tribune announced it had promoted deputy managing editor Eric Wieffering to managing editor for news verticals and assistant managing editor Chase Davis to head of newsroom strategy and transformation.

Wieffering, who has worked at the Star Tribune since 1997, will oversee the paper’s content teams. Davis, who joined the paper in 2017 from the New York Times, will “lead the company’s efforts to improve its digital presence, hone analytics and content, and explore promising new technologies,” the news release said.
