Copy editors on the rise at the N&O
Two major moves in the News & Observer newsroom have connections to copy editing:

  • Thad Ogburn is the new metro editor, overseeing the paper's local coverage. Ogburn started at the N&O as a copy editor, and he was deeply involved in the American Copy Editors Society during its formative years. He was most recently the features editor at the N&O.
  • Debra Boyette is the new features editor, succeeding Ogburn. She has worked as the copy desk chief for features at the N&O.
Congratulations to Thad and Debra on their new jobs.
