Iverson out as Pioneer Press business editor

According to three sources with first-hand knowledge, longtime Twin Cities journalist Doug Iverson is no longer St. Paul Pioneer Press business editor. 

For the moment, Iverson and Pioneer Press officials have not responded to requests for comment, so I can’t tell you exactly what’s going on. Iverson has had to manage the section through departures of reporters such as Jennifer Bjorhus, who left for the Star Tribune. Iverson will not be joining the Minneapolis-based paper.

[Update: The Pioneer Press has declined to comment, citing its policy on personnel matters.]

Iverson became business editor in 2002, succeeding Chris Worthington, who is now an MPR newsroom executive. Iverson had been a Pioneer Press reporter since 1992.

    Mr. Iverson will be missed by the paper. I’ve worked with him for better than 15 years, first at Northwest and then on behalf of various clients, as he’s gone from beat reporter to business editor and always found him to be a straight shooter, professional and – something I prize – possessed of a sly, dry sense of humor. I wish him well.
