Elizabeth Zavala has accepted the position of Deputy City Editor at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. She leaves rival Dallas Morning News, where she was the Assistant Metro Editor and where she’s worked for the past seven years. Her last day on the job is July 13.
She’ll be taking a week’s vacation, before she tackles her second tour of duty at the Star-Telegram. She worked there for 10 years, before going to the Dallas Morning News in 2000.
Although she’s ecstatic and excited at the new challenge, she says she’s sad to leave the many friends she’s made at The Dallas Morning News.
Elizabeth is on the board of directors of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.
