Times welcomes new managing editor


Erin Orr has joined The Times Media Co. as its managing editor.

Orr came from The State Journal Register in Spring­field, Ill., where she had served as managing editor since 2008.

Orr hails from Southern California, where she began her career at the Antelope Valley Press in Palmdale, Calif.

She also worked at the Stockton Record and The Modesto Bee in California before joining The State Journal Register, where she spent 12 years as a features and magazine editor before becoming managing editor.

Orr said she and her husband look forward to spending time at the lakeshore and area parks and venturing further afield to Milwaukee and Michigan.

And, the Midwestern climate is fine with Orr.

“I’m a true Californian who loves four seasons,” she said.
