Jim Amoss Steps Down at The Times-Picayune
Longtime editor of The Times-Picayune and NOLA.com Jim Amoss has announced his exit from the role after 25 years. Amoss first joined the paper in 1980 when it merged with The States-Item, serving as city editor and metro editor before being named editor in 1990. Amoss oversaw the debut of NOLA.com as well as the paper’s coverage of Hurricane Katrina, helping to establish the New Orleans daily as a major player in the newspaper world. Amoss will serve on the paper’s editorial board into the fall, before moving into new role as editor at large for Advance Digital, part of the paper’s parent company.
Stepping into Amoss’ shoes as editor and vice president of content is Times-Picayune veteran Mark Lorando, who has served as director of metro content since 2012, overseeing state and Washington content since 2014. Lorando previously served as the paper’s features editor since 2000 and TV columnist since 1984. He first joined the paper in 1981 as a newsroom clerk.
