The Star hires Pulitzer winner to head editorial board

Colleen McCain Nelson, who was a summer intern at The Kansas City Star in 1995, will return this fall as vice president of the newspaper’s editorial board. She received a Pulitzer with two others for their editorials at The Dallas Morning News and currently covers Hillary Clinton’s campaign. The Star also is hiring Eric Nelson, her husband, to head its digital operations. For both, the move from jobs in Washington, D.C., marks a return to roots.
