Cary Osborne, sports editor of The Signal for two years, has been named assistant managing editor of the paper, it was announced Wednesday.

Osborne, 28, will continue managing the sports department of the Santa Clarita Valley’s only daily newspaper and assume some additional responsibilities, including guiding the copy desk.

“Cary has a wide knowledge of newsroom operations,” Signal Managing Editor Lila Littlejohn said. “I’m delighted to have a second in command with his page-design expertise and familiarity with this valley.”

Osborne, a Santa Clarita Valley resident since 1986, joined The Signal in 2002 as copy editor, eventually moving up to the position of sports editor.

He left the paper in April 2008 for personal reasons and returned in November as interim sports editor.

“I hope my passion for this business will rub off on people. I am very dedicated to this newspaper and this business,” Osborne said Wednesday.

“I’d like to see circulation rise and the overall product to improve — from writing, to design, to content and to the entire visual element. In a year, there’s no doubt I feel we can accomplish these things.”

Osborne graduated from California State University, Northridge, with a bachelor’s degree in journalism, has worked as a freelance writer in addition to his tenure at The Signal and has received several writing awards.

He also has an extensive background in customer service.

Osborne said his continued goal as sports editor is to “make the section better than ever” in the coming months.

“(The Signal is) the only newspaper that covers the Santa Clarita Valley on a daily basis,” he said. “We are the perpetual history book of the Santa Clarita Valley.”
