Designer / Metro Layout

Beverly Cronin

Beverly Cronin designs the Metro cover Monday through Friday and layout the inside Metro pages. She also copy edits stories and writes headlines and captions, as needed. After the nightly Metro news meeting, during which we decide what stories will go on the cover and various aspects of their play there, she returns to her work area and puts together the section. To this end, she works with the photo desk and the info graphics artists to get the best elements to illustrate the stories and then makes a coherent and attractive news report for the edification and enjoyment of the readers. Throughout the night and through the three editions, she works with the city desk as stories change in content, importance, and even length, remaining as flexible as possible to make room for the most up-to-date news.
