Carolina Garcia, named the new editor at the Daily News in April, has been replacing staffers who departed since she arrived with more reporters and editors of color. I posted in August about Oscar Garza and Mariel Garza moving into senior positions. Four more hires, from the website Journal-isms:
"I also hired two reporters and two copy editors, and they also were diverse candidates, Asian American, African American and two Latino reporters," Garcia told Journal-isms on [last] Wednesday. "On the copy desk we hired [Cliff] Redding and Kay Scanlon and the two reporters were Justino Aguila and George Sanchez." Garcia arrived after a number of cutbacks."Overall, I am down by four folks from the moment I was hired," she said.
"The Parity Project team played a direct role in helping that paper to hire several of its new personnel, including NABJ member Cliff Redding," Kevin Olivas, director of the diversity project of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, told Journal-isms.
