Veteran journalist Marc Duvoisin has been named editor and vice president of the San Antonio Express-News.

Duvoisin had been a top editor at the Los Angeles Times from 2001 through 2017, the last five as managing editor. In that role, he oversaw all news gathering by the local, national, foreign, business and sports staffs, supervising the work of more than 400 journalists.

Most recently, Duvoisin served as an editor-at-large at the Houston Chronicle for nine months. The Express-News and Chronicle are owned by Hearst, a New York-based diversified media company.

Duvoisin, 62, succeeds Mike Leary, who retired May 18 after a 46-year journalism career — including the last six as the Express-News’ editor.

Duvoisin’s hiring is immediate. He will head a newsroom of more than 100, share leadership of the Hearst Texas Austin and Washington bureaus, and work closely with the Chronicle and other Texas papers.

He also will partner with the rest of the Express-News executive team on new products and other initiatives. His hiring was jointly announced by Express-News Publisher Susan Pape and Nancy Barnes, executive editor of Hearst Texas Newspapers and the Houston Chronicle.

Projects Duvoisin edited or co-edited the Los Angeles Times won three Pulitzer Prizes, as well as other national journalism honors.

At the Chronicle, he co-edited “Developing Storm,” a seven-part series that explored environmental, business interests and other factors that contributed to the devastation during Hurricane Harvey. He also worked on a three-part profile of megachurch pastor Joel Osteen.
