Executive Editor Appointed at Daily Memphian
Cara Erickson, President of media industry executive search consultancy NewCoordinates, LLC is pleased to have recruited experienced newsroom leader Ronnie Ramos as Executive Editor at The Daily Memphian (www.dailymemphian.com). The Daily Memphian was launched in fall 2018 with significant funding from local donors and philanthropists seeking to support its ambitious metro news mission – at a time when many established newspaper companies have cut back their staffing for local journalism.
Ramos comes to Memphis from The Indianapolis Star, where he was Executive Editor since 2018 after having previously led its Digital and Sports news departments. There, he is credited with having particular impact in accelerating digital story telling, and driving reader subscription growth. He previously headed Digital Communications for the NCAA for several years, after building versatile journalism experience at Cox and Gannett papers. Ramos held senior editorial roles at the Atlanta Constitution; was Executive Editor at the Shreveport (LA) Times; and led reporting teams at the Fort Myers News Press and The Miami Herald after getting his start as a reporter in Milwaukee.
Ronnie Ramos earned his undergraduate degree in journalism at University of Miami, and did graduate work as a Neiman Fellow at Harvard University.
