Taylor returns as CPP editor in chief


Frank Taylor returned to Carolina Public Press this week to oversee its news operations as editor in chief.

Taylor, who previously was CPP managing editor from 2015 to 2022, served as Columbia editor of The Post and Courier, which is based in Charleston, South Carolina, since leaving CPP. 

“While I’m grateful for the opportunity I had to lead a sharp reporting team at an excellent newspaper in recent months, I’ve greatly missed North Carolina and the nonprofit investigative and in-depth mission of Carolina Public Press,” Taylor said.

Taylor was editor and in some cases writer or co-writer of several of CPP’s most impactful, widely read and highly awarded stories and projects, including the 2017 Questionable Care investigation into state oversight of adult care homes, the 2019 Seeking Conviction collaborative project on sexual assault prosecutions and the 2022 Dodging Standards probe into social services agencies hiring unqualified personnel.
