Trif Alatzas was named Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of the Baltimore Sun Media Group in March 2016. An award-winning reporter and editor during the past 27 years, Trif has held several roles at The Baltimore Sun since joining the organization in 2002, including Executive Editor/Senior Vice President, Head of Digital Media, Sports Editor and Business Editor. He oversees business operations and the newsrooms for The Baltimore Sun, The Baltimore Sun Media Group’s web sites and the company’s targeted media division of community newspapers and magazines. He led The Sun’s newsrooms through the company’s successful transition to paid digital subscriptions in 2011. He is credited with bridging the print and online divisions of the newsroom and ensuring The Sun’s journalists have an array of skills to maneuver between digital and print platforms seamlessly. He also developed and drove the editorial strategy in BSMG’s 2014 acquisitions of The Annapolis Capital and The Carroll County Times. In 2014, he formed The Sun's investigative team dedicating five journalists to watchdog reporting and expanded that coverage so journalists throughout The Sun's newsroom participate in that work. Under his leadership, The Sun and its journalists were recognized during the past year with more than 20 national awards for work including investigative journalism, online reporting and design as well as breaking news and explanatory coverage.
