Kevin Wendt, currently assistant managing editor for the sports, copy and design desks at the Merc, has been named editor of the Huntsville Times, according to a Merc memo posted by Romenesko. The memo from David Butler and David Satterfield says, “Kevin will be among the youngest newspaper editors in the country, and it’s no surprise to any of us. Since his arrival at the Mercury News in 2000 — wearing a degree from Northern Illinois University and a black eye delivered by some thugs he exposed in the campus newspaper — Kevin has shown an incredible aptitude for this business.” Wendt, who is 30, will leave the Merc on June 18.
