Euclid Media Group has appointed HernÃ¡n Rozemberg as Editor-in-Chief of the San Antonio Current effective January 13, 2015. The appointment of Mr. Rozemberg, 41, currently Metro Editor of The Lafayette Journal & Courier, launches a new commitment to both print and digital platforms for the San Antonio Current.
â€œItâ€™s a challenging time in todayâ€™s ever-changing media landscape,â€ Rozemberg said. â€œYet The Current remains strong, still providing a vibrant, important voice for San Antonio.â€
â€œHernÃ¡n is a beast,â€ said Michael Wagner, Publisher of San Antonio Current. â€œWe are fired up to start 2015 with him leading our editorial team and driving our continuous audience growth.â€
The move to the San Antonio Current marks a homecoming for Rozemberg, who previously lived and worked in the Alamo City for a decade. His first gig right out of college in Massachusetts was as a reporter for an alt-weekly publication.
â€œThat experience convinced me that I made the right choice pursuing journalism,â€ Rozemberg stated. â€œI absolutely loved it and now, many grey hairs later, I still carry the same fire in the belly about this craft.â€
Rozemberg is an award-winning journalist with nearly 20 years of multi-platform experience. He has worked for various publications across the country, including two metropolitan daily newspapers, including the San Antonio Express News, where he served as a Senior Writer covering immigration and border issues.
Rozemberg also dabbled in the broadcast and digital realms, with an emphasis on multi-media reporting. He served as a Senior Correspondent and Bureau Chief for Fronteras, a regional NPR network covering the Southwest. His next step involved directing a digital news operation as a Senior Editor at News Corp. in New York City, supervising a team of editors, producers and reporters.
Rozemberg holds a bachelorâ€™s in Political Economy from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and a masterâ€™s degree in International Relations from St. Maryâ€™s University.
