Oregonian Hires Bulletin's Lukens 

The Oregonian has tapped former Bulletin editorial page editor Erik Lukens to replace Bob Caldwell as the Oregonian’s editorial page director.

The Oregonian has tapped former Bulletin editorial page editor Erik Lukens to replace Bob Caldwell as the Oregonian’s editorial page director.

The paper announced the move in a blog post Wednesday afternoon and said Lukens will start in June.

Lukens has been with the Bulletin since 1998, primarily as the editorial page editor, more recently he has served as the paper’s city editor, a position that has seen a cast of characters rotate through over the past five years. It was widely speculated that Lukens was in line to take over when the paper’s editor in chief John Costa steps aside.

Lukens walks into another paper where the editorial board is widely known to sit well to the right of its news coverage. The move appears to cement publisher T. Christian Anderson’s commitment to that conservative approach, despite the liberal bent of the paper’s primary audience in the Portland metro area.
