Timothy E. Archuleta, a veteran Texas journalist in The E.W. Scripps Company and editor of the company’s San Angelo Standard-Times since 2003, has been named editor of the Corpus Christi Caller-Times, effective Oct. 21.
In 10 years at the Standard-Times, Archuleta, 50, led digital and print reporting efforts that won state and national accolades. In the past year, he established and supervised a new state capitol reporting position in Austin, serving all four Scripps Texas newspapers.
“Tim’s love for journalism, passion for community and understanding of multi-platform storytelling is an ideal fit for Corpus Christi and the Caller-Times,” said Mizell Stewart III, vice president of content for the Scripps newspaper division.
As editor of the Standard-Times, Archuleta has overseen the digital expansion of the Standard-Times footprint via gosanangelo.com. The Texas Associated Pressing Managing Editors named it the best online newspaper in its category in 2008 and 2012.
In 2011, Editor & Publisher named gosanangelo.com the Best Daily Newspaper Website for online news sites with between 250,000 and 1 million monthly unique visitors.
The Texas APME also named the Standard-Times Newspaper of the Year in 2008. The newspaper received recognition in this category in three of the past five years.
Archuleta volunteered his time on several San Angelo community and civic boards, including the Fort Concho Foundation, the Hunt for Heroes military appreciation hunts and a youth basketball organization.
Before joining the Standard-Times, Archuleta served in a variety of editing and reporting roles at The Albuquerque Tribune, including managing editor, city editor, deputy city editor, politics editor, legislative and politics reporter, and police reporter.
Before joining The Tribune in 1991, Archuleta worked for two years as a crime and police administration reporter for the San Diego Tribune and two years as a politics and county government reporter for the Saginaw (Mich.) News.
Earlier in his career, Archuleta served two years as managing editor of the Grant (N.M.) Daily Beacon, a 6,000-circulation daily, where he managed a small staff of reporters and sports and community news correspondents.
Archuleta graduated in 1985 from Eastern New Mexico University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in mass communications with an emphasis on print journalism and radio-television reporting. He is married to Carla Archuleta and they have three children.
