Steve Cavendish, a newspaper and online media veteran whose local ties include an early stint at the late, lamented Nashville Banner, has been announced as the new editor of The City Paper. From

Cavendish is returning home to Nashville, where he began his career at the Nashville Banner, after stints at the St. Petersburg Times, Washington Post, and most recently, the Chicago Tribune. Cavendish will begin work at The City Paper Sept. 19. He replaces Stephen George, who is now serving as press secretary for Rep. Jim Cooper.

“I am excited Steve is coming home to Nashville to take the helm of The City Paper. Steve brings years of experience at some of the best newspapers in the country,” said SouthComm CEO Chris Ferrell. “I am looking forward to working with him to continue to make The City Paper the best source of local news coverage in Nashville.”

A 1993 Belmont University graduate, Cavendish had been at the Tribune since 2004 where he served in various editorial and writing capacities. In addition, he has served as an adjunct instructor at the University of Maryland and a guest lecturer at Stanford University.

“Nashville is home for me. To be able to join a talented staff like The City Paper’s is a thrill,” Cavendish said. “Nashville needs strong newspapers to hold our leaders accountable, to inform our citizens and to help them understand the world around them. And if we need to explain how a Cover Two defense works, we'll do that, too.”
