Personnel note: Katie Sanders promoted at PolitiFact

PolitiFact, the Poynter Institute’s fact-checking arm, has named its first managing editor: Katie Sanders, currently the organization’s deputy editor.

Executive editor Aaron Sharockman made the announcement on his Twitter feed.

Sanders is a former member of the Tampa Bay Times and Miami Herald’s combined capital bureau.

She helped launch PunditFact in 2013, and has held the deputy position at PolitiFact since November 2015.

Katie will have expanded responsibilities over the daily work on PolitiFact (more on that as things shake out), and we are going to ask her to take on a bit more formal role managing our state partners across the country,” Sharockman wrote.

Sanders is a summa cum laude graduate of the University of Florida who majored in Journalism.
