JACKSON — Genia Lovett, a longtime Gannett executive, has been named interim president and publisher of The Clarion-Ledger in Jackson.
The Clarion-Ledger reports that Gannett East Group President Michael Kane announced Lovett’s new job Tuesday.
Lovett also becomes regional president for Gannett East Group, with responsibilities for the company’s newspapers in Hattiesburg, and Montgomery, Alabama.
She is an Ohio native and retired from Gannett last year after seven years as president and publisher in Appleton, Wisconsin. She also served as regional president for Gannett’s Wisconsin properties.
Jason Taylor left as Clarion-Ledger publisher in early June, after less than a year in the job. He became president and publisher of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, owned by GateHouse Media.
