Stephen Buckley named Poynter Institutes's dean of faculty

ST. PETERSBURG — The Poynter Institute has named Stephen Buckley as its new dean of faculty.

Buckley, 43, publisher of and former managing editor of the St. Petersburg Times, assumes responsibility for all of the Institute's in-person and e-learning programs, as well as for the staff that designs and carries them out.

Buckley took a leave in January from the Times — which is owned by Poynter — to become interim dean. He replaces Keith Woods, who joined National Public Radio as vice president, diversity in news and operations.

Karen B. Dunlap, Poynter's president, announced Buckley's appointment and said his experience as a leader in print and digital journalism, together with his longtime connection to Poynter, made him the ideal choice for dean.

Buckley grew up in St. Petersburg and first attended a Poynter writing program as a teenager. He graduated from Duke University and also worked for the Washington Post as a foreign correspondent based in Kenya and Brazil.

The Poynter Institute, located in St. Petersburg, is a school dedicated to serving journalism in the interest of democracy.
