MPR News named Sarah Glover as its newsroom’s managing editor.
She is former manager of social media strategy at NBC Owned Television Stations. She has experience as a photographer for the Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia Daily News, and was the first two-term president of the National Association of Black Journalists.
“During her tenure, she created the NABJ Black Male Media Project, which examines the portrayal of Black men in the media,” MPR stated in its announcement. “She also played a crucial role in the Associated Press Stylebook’s move to capitalize the ‘B’ in Black to describe people and communities.”
She will lead 40 reporters, photojournalists and editors and be responsible for editorial decisions and planning on MPR News platforms.
“As communities across America strive for equity, so does the news industry,” she was quoted in the announcement. “My goal is to build upon the diversity work at MPR and develop an anti-racist and inclusive newsroom that’s a model for the nation. Storytelling is truth-telling, and the role of journalism is vital.”
Mike Mulcahy has been acting as interim managing editor since Laura McCallum took another post.
Minnesota Public Radio is a subsidiary of American Public Media Group.
