Brent Walth, who shared in a Pulitzer Prize for public service reporting while at The Oregonian, has been named Willamette Week‘s news editor. He replaces Hank Stern, who is leaving the paper to work for the county.
“Brent is an extraordinary journalist; I’ve dreamt about getting him back in the WW family for some time,” editor Mark Zusman says. “The entire team here is looking forward to working with him.”
Walth previously worked as a reporter under Zusman from 1986 to 1989.
