A veteran newsman from Mason City has been named editor in Charles City.
The Charles City Press reports that Bob Steenson is the new leader of the newsroom. Steenson said Monday that he’s replacing Chris Baldus, who left the Press to seek other opportunities.
Steenson attended high school in Forest City and earned bachelor’s degrees from Iowa State University. Steenson has spent time at newspapers in Dyersville and Webster City in Iowa and at the Fairmont Sentinel in Fairmont, Minnesota. He joined the Globe Gazette in 1995 as news editor.
