Don Effenberger

MinnPost News Editor Don Effenberger coordinates coverage of Minnesota politics, business and sports news.

Don is a St. Paul native who worked at the Pioneer Press for 28 years, handling a wide range of editing assignments, including supervising coverage of religion, education, health, St. Paul and Ramsey County news and a wide array of special projects.

Between longevity and attrition, he became one of the newsroom’s de facto "historians," in part because of several favorite career projects. He edited and designed the company history book and oversaw yearlong coverage of the paper's 150th anniversary (the Pioneer Press' forerunner, the Minnesota Pioneer, is the state's oldest paper!).
