Wendy Metcalfe, currently working at a newspaper in Scotland, has been hired as the new St. Catharines Standard managing editor.
She will replace Andrea Kriluck, who is retiring May 27 after 31 years with the paper, including eight years as ME.
A Standard story says Metcalfe, a Canadian, is currently editor of the Greenock Telegraph and Inverclyde Extra, just outside of Glasgow.
Publisher Judy Bullis says "her experience, energy and enthusiasm to spearhead the Standard and our regional direction will serve us and our community well."
The story says Metcalfe has worked for several newspapers in the UK, including Scotland's flagship national newspaper, the Daily Record.
