For journalism students, working as a managing editor at the Sun Sentinel is an elusive dream. For Ruben Cueto, it is reality.
Mr. Cueto works at Forum Publishing Group, where he oversees Sun Sentinel’s community news section, which runs in the Sunday paper. Although Mr. Cueto has only been working with the main newspaper since 2004, he has been with Forum Publishing for 15 years.
“[Originally] I was hired as a reporter covering one of our Dade County newspapers. After a while, I was moved to our Miami Lakes newspaper…,” Mr. Cueto said. “I worked my way up as a reporter to assistant manager, to editor and then to managing editor.”
On Friday, Mr. Cueto spared his time to speak with Freelanship about his life as a managing editor.
