Sue Ontiveros biography

Updated: November 12, 2010 2:42PM

Sue Ontiveros has probably one of the wackiest double jobs around. She writes a column on the Saturday editorial pages and is the editor of the Sun-Times' Food section. (She also is a regular contributor to the She Said columns in the paper's Lifestyle section.) She is quite passionate about both duties, which is about the only thing these jobs have in common. The column on the editorial page, which appears biweekly, — or weekly when she can't keep her mouth shut about something any longer — deals with social issues, especially those impacting women, Latinos and children. Sue has worked in newspapers for 29 years, as a reporter, copy editor and editor. For the last 23 years she has been with the Chicago Sun-Times, where she has held a variety of positions. Sue has her bachelor's and master's degrees in journalism from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. A native of Chicago, Sue lives in the city's Rogers Park neighborhood.
