Cooper

San Francisco Chronicle Deputy Managing Editor Audrey Cooper has been named managing editor, the first woman in the paper’s 148-year history to fill that role.

Cooper, 35, joined the paper in 2006 as an assistant metro editor. She had previously worked at the Tri-Valley Herald, the Associated Press and the Stockton Record, where she served as metro editor.

At the Chronicle, Cooper has helped launch a weekly Health section, create a breaking news team and develop investigative projects.

She succeeds Stephen Proctor, who became managing editor of the Houston Chronicle last year.
