Triton expands editorial team

Fort Lauderdale-based Triton Publishing Group has hired veteran South Florida editor Susan Jobe as associate editor of The Triton. Jobe has been a news editor for more than 26 years and was previously with the South Florida Sun-Sentinel for 16 years. She will work with The Triton’s pool of expert columnists, edit freelance writers and manage incoming news releases.

“I’m proud of the publication, grateful to be joining an awesome crew, and stoked about the fun, adventurous, sea-loving community we serve,” Jobe said.

Jobe joins Editor Dorie Cox to help The Triton continue to grow. Founding editor Lucy Chabot Reed has taken over as publisher. Combined, they have more than 75 years of journalism experience.

“Having Susan in the newsroom is integral to our ability to cover the news that’s so important to yacht captains and crew,” Cox said. “As we continue to rise out of the economic downturn, there is a lot of news that needs our attention. Susan’s efforts have already made it possible for me to focus on the critical work of paying that attention.”
