ST. LOUIS — The former editor of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch is the new executive director of the American Society of News Editors.

ASNE announced the hiring Monday of Arnie Robbins, who stepped down last month after 15 years at the newspaper, including more than six years as editor. He begins work with ASNE on July 9 as the organization moves to the MU campus from Washington, D.C.

Robbins succeeds Richard Karpel, who will remain in the Washington area and was recently named president and CEO of the Yoga Alliance, which represents and certifies yoga schools and instructors in the U.S.

ASNE announced in April it was partnering with the University of Missouri School of Journalism. It will continue to maintain an office in Washington.
