From Portland Afoot
The Oregonian is the only general-interest daily newspaper serving Portland. It is part of the privately owned Advance publishing chain, which also controls the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the Cleveland Plain Dealer, American City Business Journals (including the Portland Business Journal, among many others) and the Conde Nast magazine family (including The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, and Wired, among many others).
The paper's main transportation writer is Joseph Rose, who writes its Hard Drive column and blog. Former environmental and transportation reporter Dylan Rivera was among 37 news employees laid off in February 2010 as part of the paper's largest downsizing in decades.
Since 2009, The Oregonian's top executive has been Publisher N. Christian Anderson III, known as Chris. A few months later, Anderson named Peter Bhatia the paper's new top editor, overseeing its news pages.
