Amy Carlile has been promoted to managing editor of E&E News, a brand-new role at the company. It is one of several editorial changes E&E News has announced to create a dynamic newsroom ready to tackle more ambitious projects and insightful coverage of quickly evolving energy and environment issues.
The founding editor of E&E News’ Energywire, Carlile will bring an in-depth news sense and understanding of the issues to help coordinate E&E News’ five publications and 70-person newsroom, as well as strengthen the staff recruiting and journalism training programs.
Katie Howell has been named editor of Greenwire, E&E News’ flagship publication. Formerly a Greenwire reporter and deputy editor, Howell has the experience and keen eye for details to keep the publication the leading source of energy, environment and natural resources news. She will also remain the breaking news editor.
Joel Kirkland will become enterprise editor, a new position focused on leading more in-depth and sophisticated enterprise projects, a defining feature of E&E News. He was formerly deputy editor of Energywire, and was an energy reporter whose coverage won a 2011 Best in Business award from the Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing.
Erica Martinson has been hired as the new natural resources editor. She will be in charge of E&E News' award-winning coverage of public lands, endangered species and the Department of the Interior. Most recently the Washington correspondent for the Anchorage Daily News, Erica has many years of covering environment and energy issues under her belt including stints at Politico and Inside EPA.
Rounding out the changes, E&E News is creating new reporter-editor roles to sharpen coverage and coordination across all five publications, while still allowing experienced reporters to continue coverage of their beats. Energy reporters Hannah Northey and Christa Marshall have been elevated to deputy energy editors to oversee energy coverage, and law reporter Ellen M. Gilmer will become the legal editor.
"Having a managing editor and a more robust editorial staff will provide better opportunities for our publications to tap resources and staff based here in Washington and across the country," Executive Editor Cyril T. Zaneski said. "I am excited to see the enhanced coverage and investigative journalism these changes will facilitate."
