S.F. Examiner's executive editor announces changes

In an e-mail announcement to the newsroom, The Examiner Executive Editor James Pimentel said that Managing Editor Zoran Basich will be leaving the paper in October.

Pimentel also announced that Senior Assistant Managing Editor Deirdre Hussey will be promoted to managing editor.

Basich is leaving The Examiner to work as an editor for Dow Jones and Co. in San Francisco. A longtime San Francisco resident, Basich first joined The Examiner in 2001. He was named managing editor in July 2006.

Hussey has been with The Examiner for five years and has been primarily responsible for driving the local news coverage, serving as city editor and senior assistant managing editor responsible for news.

Prior to joining The Examiner, Hussey’s career included four years at The Village Voice in New York City and a stint as a local news reporter with the Cape Argus in Cape Town, South Africa.

“While we will all miss Zoran’s presence in the newsroom, I am confident that Deirdre’s journalistic skills, leadership and dedication, which have served us well in her role supervising local news, will continue to be an asset in an expanded role,” Pimentel said.
