Phil Bronstein is stepping down as executive editor of the Chronicle and a new editor with “deep roots in the Bay Area” will be announced in the next couple of days, newsroom staffers were told today. Bronstein will remain executive vice president of the Chron and will take on the title of editor-at-large for the paper and the Hearst newspaper division, working on strategic issues and investigative projects. Bronstein, 57, has been Hearst’s top editor in San Francisco for 17 years, first for nine years when the company owned the Examiner and eight more when it bought the Chronicle.
