Euclid Media Group announces the appointment of award-winning journalist Sarah Fenske as executive editor, effective June 27.

In her new position, Fenske will be supervising all editorial content for the Riverfront Times, Detroit Metro Times, Cleveland Scene, Cincinnati City Beat and Louisville Eccentric Observer.

"I've never had more fun in journalism, or did more important work, than in my years at alt-weeklies, so I couldn't be more excited about coming back," Fenske says. "I can't wait to work with Rosalind and her team, as well as the talented writers and editors across Euclid's publications. These papers are more vital than ever, and I look forward to being a part of their ongoing renaissance."

To the position, Fenske brings over 23 years of experience as a journalist and editor, including nearly three as host of St. Louis On The Air, St. Louis Public Radio's daily talk show. She's previously served as editor-in-chief of the Riverfront Times; director of digital content at Feast Magazine and editor-in-chief of the L.A. Weekly.

Under Fenske's leadership, St. Louis on the Air won a regional Edward R. Murrow award earlier this year. In 2011, she won the Livingston Award for Young Journalists, and she's also won awards from the Arizona Press Club, the Association of Women in Journalism (the Clarion Awards) and the National Society of Newspaper Columnists.

“I’m very pleased and excited that Sarah will be rejoining us as executive editor,” says Chris Keating, Euclid Media Group chief operating officer. “She’s an incredibly talented editor and leader who has the experience with and skills to support the Euclid family of weeklies as they continue their important work of bringing news and culture to their communities. It’s a challenging time for journalism, but Sarah is more than up to the task.”
