RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The newspaper in Virginia’s capital city has a new managing editor.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch announced Tuesday that Mike Szvetitz has been named to the position as the newsroom’s No. 2 editor. He will handle day-to-day newsroom operations, oversee reporters and editors and report to Executive Editor Paige Mudd.

Szvetitz has worked as the newspaper’s sports editor for the last 2 ½ years.

The 38-year-old Pennsylvania native came to Richmond after serving for a decade as the sports editor of the Opelika-Auburn News. He started his career as a high school sports reporter for Highlands Today in Sebring, Florida.

Szvetitz is taking over for Brice Anderson, who retired in April.
