Houston Chronicle names Kelly Ann Scott new executive editor


A veteran editor whose team recently won two Pulitzer Prizes in a single year will become the Houston Chronicle’s next executive editor, publisher Nancy Meyer said Thursday. 

Kelly Ann Scott joins the Chronicle from Alabama Media Group, part of Advance Local, where she served as editor-in-chief and vice president of content, leading a team of more than 120 journalists. There, she oversaw the state's largest digital news site, AL.com, and launched several new initiatives, including The Lede, a daily e-edition curated for subscribers in Mobile, Huntsville and Birmingham; the Alabama Education Lab, the state’s first philanthropy-funded journalism initiative; and Reckon, a digital news startup focused on younger readers and those left out of traditional media that has 26 journalists reporting from 15 states.
