Tad Weber, managing editor of The Tribune, is leaving to become metro editor of The Fresno Bee, effective Monday. “It's an opportunity to work with a bigger newsroom in a metro market,” Weber said.
Weber, 53, joined The Tribune in March 2000 as city editor and was promoted to managing editor a few months later.
“He has been a key player in strengthening news coverage countywide, producing terrific journalism that has made a difference to readers and won many state and national awards,’’ said Executive Editor Sandra Duerr.
The Fresno Bee, like The Tribune, is owned by The McClatchy Co.
Never miss a local story.
The search for Weber’s replacement is underway.
“Working and living in San Luis Obispo has been a tremendous experience,” Weber said. “I have the utmost affection and respect for the Tribune staff, the community and this special place.”
