A promotion and the return of Wes Hughes to the San Bernardino Sun - Hughes, a former Sun columnist, suffered the ax in the March layoffs. The memo from editor Steve Lambert follows:
I am very pleased to announce the promotion of George Watson to city editor of The Sun. George is a national award winning journalist who, since joining The Sun, has led some of our most ambitious enterprise and investigative work, including 2005's groundbreaking series, "Unnatural Disasters."
I am also extremely happy to announce the return of Wes Hughes to The Sun and to our city desk operation. Wes, too, has been a key figure in some of our most high-profile efforts, including "Teens Who Kill" and "Lost Among Us." He will return as an editor on the city desk, eventually taking on some writing assignments as well.
Please join me in welcoming George and Wes to their new roles.
