Bee’s editorial editor Dan Morain joins Dan Walters at CALmatters nonprofit news site

Dan Morain, the Sacramento Bee’s editorial page editor, is now working at CALmatters with his former colleague from The Bee, Dan Walters, who joined  the nonprofit news site last year as its first columnist.

CALmatters is a nonprofit explanatory journalism newcomer for California.

“CALmatters will share Morain’s work with a network of more than 130 print, radio and online publications that it has developed since its launch as a nonprofit in 2015,” CALmatters announced. “Morain’s addition at this juncture reflects the spotlight CALmatters will shine this year on the vitally important 2018 gubernatorial and state legislative races, which will define California’s future.”

This is an ongoing trend as new media startups abound. In the ’90s I left The Chronicle after a decade to go to San Francisco-based startup CNET to help launch CNET.News as it was going public. I was Editor, and we won a prestigious National Magazine Award, among other honors. CNET later was sold to CBS for almost $2 billion.
