Evan Ramstad, an editor at the Star Tribune business news section, will become the newest columnist in the section, starting Jan. 1.
A story on its website states, “An Iowa native, Ramstad, 57, has also worked as a reporter and editor in Dallas, New York, Washington, Hong Kong and Seoul. He spent most of his career covering technology companies in the Midwest and Asia.
