PITTSBURGH (AP) — The former top editor of The Philadelphia Inquirer who resigned after an uproar over a headline lamenting damage to businesses amid protests against racial injustice has been named executive editor and vice president of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Stan Wischnowski, who led the Inquirer for 10 years and led the paper to a Pulitzer Prize in 2012, is to begin his position at the Post-Gazette Sept. 14.

During two decades in Philadelphia, Wischnowski directed the merger of the Inquirer, Daily News and philly.com newsrooms and helped modernize the newsroom into a 24-hour news operation. The paper won the 2012 Pulitzer for public service for an in-depth investigation of violence in Philadelphia’s public schools.

He stepped down in June after the paper apologized for use of the headline, “Buildings Matter, Too,” on a column about looting and vandalism on the margins of protests of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis at the hands of a white police officer.
