Previously, he was managing editor of Chicago News Cooperative and chief of editorial operations at Crain's Chicago Business. Before that, he oversaw Bloomberg's coverage of the White House and Congress as a U.S. government team leader. Additionally, Kirk was formerly business editor of the Chicago Tribune.
Kirk joined the Chicago Tribune in June 1997 as a marketing and advertising writer. He served as a columnist and business editor before his appointment to the business section’s top job in February 2005. Kirk's departure from the Tribune followed several other high-level editors and reporters as the paper reorganized and cut staff. Tribune Co. filed for bankruptcy protection Dec. 8 as boss Sam Zell tried to renegotiate its debt.
