As publisher of Catalyst Chicago, I am very pleased to announce that on July 1, Lorraine Forte will step up to the position of editor in chief of Catalyst Chicago. Lorraine has been our deputy editor for the last five years.

She will succeed Veronica Anderson, who after eight years as editor, has been named a Knight Fellow at Stanford University, one of journalism’s most prestigious honors and opportunities. She is one of a dozen members of the Knight Class of 2010.

Lorraine first worked for Catalyst as managing editor from 1991 to 1996. She then moved to the Chicago Sun-Times and, later, to WGN-TV as a news writer. Her first journalism job was at the Daily Southtown. Lorraine received a master’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University and a bachelor’s degree in English literature from Ohio State University.

We are certainly going to miss Veronica, but are delighted to have such a talented and committed journalist ready to step into her shoes.
