Christine Tansey has been promoted to Breaking News Editor at the New Haven Register.
She’ll lead a five-person breaking news desk the Register created when it reorganized its newsroom in late November. This team’s job is to speed local, state and national news to the web and digital platforms such as social media and mobile, while assuring that reporters’ breaking news copy is accurate and goes through an editing process.
Christine is a graduate of the University of Connecticut, where she was a double major in journalism and English.
She joined the Register in 2005 as a graphic designer, and over time became an integral part of the decision-making process and design of the Register’s front page and other key aspects of the print edition.
She joined the Breaking News Team in January as a web producer.
She succeeds Cara Baruzzi, who recently left the New Haven Register for a job with the United Way of Greater New Haven.
