As many of you personally know, Nancy and Howard are veterans of Tribune Publishing, and Rick brings strong industry experience to the company. Specifically:
* Nancy is an admired and respected leader in Hartford, at Tribune Publishing Company and in the industry overall. During her tenure at the Hartford Courant, she helped expand the reach of the brand across all platforms, guided the successful acquisition of Reminder Media publications, and oversaw the launch of CTNOW and CTNOW.com – all while orchestrating the successful celebration of the Hartford Courant’s 250th anniversary.
* Howard has demonstrated tremendous leadership over the past six-and-a-half years helming both the Orlando Sentinel Media Group and the Sun-Sentinel Media Group. Under his direction, the Sun-Sentinel earned a Pulitzer Prize for public service, and both the Sun-Sentinel Media Group and Orlando Sentinel Media Group introduced numerous new print, digital and advertising innovations, including the launch of the ad-building studio, which now produces locally built ads for all Tribune Publishing newspapers.
* Rick is a senior newspaper and media executive, who most recently served as Chief Operating Officer of GoLocal24, a New England digital news company. He previously served as President & CEO of GateHouse Media New England, where he spearheaded a rapid expansion of the company’s digital audience for its more than 100 newspapers and 160 web sites. Rick also spent 23 years at The Boston Globe, six as President & General Manager, during which the paper earned three Pulitzer Prizes and also launched Boston.com, one of the country’s first and largest newspaper web sites.
Attached is the press release announcing the appointments. Please join me in congratulating Nancy and Howard on their new roles and welcoming Rick to Tribune Publishing Company.
All my best – Jack
