Hiott named new editor of Austin’s Statesman

From the Statesman:

Debbie Hiott, who began her career at the American-Statesman as a reporting intern while in college, was named editor of the newspaper Tuesday.

“Debbie is a hard-hitting and homegrown newswoman whose brilliant career at the Statesman has seen her rise from entry-level reporter to the top journalism job in the building,” Statesman Publisher Jane Williams said Tuesday.
