Derek Donovan named public editor of the Star

The Star continued to shift its newsroom, announcing today that Derek Donovan will be the paper’s public editor, a newly created position, next week. He is currently the paper’s reader representative.

Donovan’s duties will include managing the Star’s social media content, including its Facebook and Twitter platforms, and KansasCity.com.

His goals, Donovan said, include looking for opportunities to cross-promote content between the newspaper and its social media platforms, and to “figure out what works in engaging readers.”
