Deborah Kolben, most recently city editor of the New York Sun, will join the Voice in April, reports the New York Observer. The winner of two National Newspaper Association awards for investigative reporting, she becomes the third former Sun employee to join the alt-weekly's staff since ex-Sun TV critic David Blum took over as editor-in-chief, according to the Observer. "I grew up in New York reading the Voice and I'm looking forward to being a part of a newspaper that plays such a vital role for so many in New York and elsewhere," Kolben says.
