MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - The Manhattan Mercury has promoted Megan Moser to executive editor.
Moser has been leading The Mercury's newsroom, including news reporters, editors, designers, photographers and the sports department on an interim basis since former executive editor Steve Cameron retired May 1.
Moser began her career at the Mercury as an intern in 2008 and graduated that year with a journalism degree from Kansas State University. She was named lifestyle editor in 2008.
The Mercury reported Tuesday (http://bit.ly/1zpvl0N ) that Moser, a native of Garden City, is the first woman named to its top editor's position in at least 100 years.
