Sharon Rosenhause, who was managing editor of the Hearst-owned Examiner from 1992 to 2000, is retiring from her current job as managing editor of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel in Fort Lauderdale. According to the AP, Rosenhause said she will initially will take several months off work, but that the decision was a “natural step in life.”
“We’ve been through a lot of changes here and I just don’t want to go through any more cuts,” Rosenhause said of staff reductions. “I am ready to do something else.”
The Tribune-owned Fort Lauderdale paper plans to eliminate her job once she retires and have other editors handle her responsibilities.
At the Examiner, Rosenhause was second in command to Editor Phil Bronstein, but she called the shots as the paper was put together every morning on deadline. When Hearst bought the Chronicle and sold off the Examiner in 2000, she became managing editor of a short-lived Chronicle afternoon edition. In March 2001, she became managing editor of the Sun-Sentinel. (Photo credit: APME)
