Meet the new boss, same as the old boss…

Detroit Free Press senior managing editor Jeffrey Taylor has been named the new editor of The Indianapolis Star.
Taylor was introduced to the Star's staff on Tuesday and succeeds Dennis Ryerson, who retired June 1 after nine years leading the newsroom staff at Indiana's largest newspaper.
The Star reports Taylor has been at the Free Press since 1995. He was a reporter at the Kansas City Star when he shared a Pulitzer Prize for national reporting in 1992 for an examination of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Taylor also was an editor on the Free Press' Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage of a scandal involving former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.
Both the Star and the Free Press are owned by Gannett Co.
