Jane Hirt

Jane Hirt is the former managing editor and vice president of the Chicago Tribune. Hirt's leadership experiences range from launching a news startup to leading a 167-year-old newsroom in the rapidly changing digital age. She has many years of experience as a news media executive and a track record of innovation.
As managing editor from 2008-2014, she supervised the daily execution of news and features content on digital, print and social platforms and also longer-term growth and innovation strategies. Under her tenure, the newsroom became known especially for investigative journalism and became a fully converged, digital-first newsroom.
Hirt is passionate about inspiring people and has a strong record of identifying and developing talented journalists. This dovetails with her support for the Alfred Friendly Press Partners, a program she has worked with for about 20 years.
Before becoming the Tribune's managing editor, Hirt was founding co-editor and then editor of RedEye, Tribune Publishing's pioneering free daily newspaper for social, urban Millennials that is widely considered an innovation success story. During the rest of her 21-year career with the Chicago Tribune, she worked in a variety of editing roles, including positions on the national, foreign and sports desks.
Hirt graduated in 1989 from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a bachelor's degree in journalism. She remains involved with the university as a member of the Alumni Association's advisory board, the college of journalism's professional advisory board, and the Nebraska Women's Leadership Network, a unique collegiate women's mentoring program of which she serves as chair. She also is volunteering for numerous other organizations during her sabbatical this year.
