Pittsburgh Current Publisher/Editor Charlie Deitch announced today that Staff Writer Haley Frederick has been promoted to managing editor effective immediately.
“There are few people more integral to the rapid growth of this company than Haley,” Deitch said. “She has been with us since our launch and has proven herself to be a vital member of this team. Haley is a gifted journalist who has taken on more and more responsibility since our online launch in June 2018. She has embraced our mission and gone above and beyond our already lofty expectations in a very short period of time. I can’t wait to see what she can do as we continue to move forward.”
Frederick, who graduated summa cum laude from the University of Pittsburgh with a degree in Nonfiction Writing in 2018, began primarily directing the Current’s food coverage and launching its intern programs. In her new role, she will become more involved in management of the paper’s day-to-day activities.
