Ann Marie Lipinski is the Nieman Foundation’s new leader

I’m very happy to say that Ann Marie Lipinski, former editor of the Chicago Tribune, has been named curator of the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard. This summer, she’ll replace Bob Giles, who has been curator since 2000 and who announced his retirement last fall.

Here’s the official Harvard press release.

Ann Marie had a highly distinguished career at the Tribune, rising from summer intern to the top editorial job at the largest newsroom in the Midwest. She, with two colleagues, won a Pulitzer Prize in investigative reporting in 1988 for reporting on Chicago’s notorious city council, and she was a Nieman Fellow in the Class of 1990. In 2008, after leaving the Tribune, she became vice president for civic engagement at the University of Chicago.

Bob has been a tremendous leader of this foundation — for one thing, close to my heart, there’d be no Nieman Journalism Lab without him — and we’ll miss him. We’re also excited to see what new ideas Ann Marie brings.
