Sun's Carroll named Editor of the Year

November 08, 1998

John S. Carroll, The Sun's top editor, has won a major award from the National Press Foundation for his work at the newspaper.

Carroll was given the George Beveridge Editor of the Year Award by the Washington-based foundation for bringing "a crisp and focused editorial style" to The Sun, which won Pulitzer Prizes last year and this year. Other recipients included Herb Block of the Washington Post and Nina Totenberg of National Public Radio.

Carroll began his newspaper career in 1963 with the Providence Journal Bulletin in Rhode Island. He joined The Sun as a reporter in 1966, then went to the Philadelphia Inquirer in 1972, where he was night city editor, city editor and metropolitan editor. In 1979, he became editor of the Lexington Herald-Leader in Kentucky. He returned to The Sun in 1991 as editor and vice president.

The awards will be presented in February in Washington.
