    Chris De Luca named Sun-Times sports editor

    November 17, 2009

    The Chicago Sun-Times on Tuesday named veteran baseball writer Chris De Luca as its new sports editor.

    De Luca, who started at the Sun-Times as a copy editor in 1996, has been the paper’s national baseball writer since 2004.

    “Chris is perfect for the job. I guarantee our sports coverage will be in good hands,’’ said Don Hayner, editor in chief of the Sun-Times.

    During his tenure at the Sun-Times, De Luca has also served as weekend sports editor. He is a Major League Baseball analyst for ESPN’s First Take and SportsCenter.

    Before coming to the Sun-Times, De Luca’s previous experience included executive sports editor for Contra Costa Newspapers in California’s Bay Area and sports editor of the Monterey County Herald.

    He has also worked for the Escondido Times-Advocate, the Sacramento Bee, the San Diego Union and the Los Angeles Times.

    De Luca is the co-author of the book Classic Cubs: A Tribute to the Men and Magic of Wrigley Field and authored a book on the 2005 World Champion White Sox, published by the Sporting News.

    De Luca grew up in Sacramento, Calif., and is a graduate of San Diego State University.

    Tony Kornheiser doesn't think De Luca's sports section will be able to cover Chicago sports, then. Since he "just" got to town. [/crossthreading]

    These "makes me feel old" deals are always interesting. Chris DeLuca was a part-timer covering preps for me at one of my tour stops, and obviously very early in his career.

    What's the inside scoop? Did the Sun-Times make a good move? I see no one here has ripped DeLuca yet, so that must be a plus.

    It's early still.

    In that vein, I would suggest that the title of this thread ought to be:

    Chris De Luca last Sun-Times sports editor

    Can't imagine there will be many more for that place. Sad to say.
