Curtis Park resident Joyce Terhaar has been replaced as editor of The Sacramento Bee. In a consolidation of management functions, McClatchy Newspapers announced in mid-January that it is bringing in Lauren Gustus, the editor of its newspaper in Fort Worth, Texas, to be a regional editor overseeing its California newspapers and another newspaper in Boise, Idaho.
The announcement quoted Joyce as saying she and husband Geoff Long hope to take a few months “to recharge” and travel. She said she had thought about writing and teaching, and the change is “an opportunity to decide if that time is now.”
Joyce came to The Bee as a reporter in 1988, and became city editor in 1993, managing editor in 1998, and executive editor in 2011.
