Alverson named editor/publisher
Jon Alverson has been named editor and publisher of the Delta Democrat Times in Greenville. Alverson, a native of Mobile, Ala., graduated from the University of Florida in 1998. He has more than 15 years of newspaper experience including stops in Alabama, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Mississippi.
Though Alverson is new to the Delta, he knows the area well from being good friends with the two former publishers of the DDT, John Clark and Matt Guthrie.
Joining Alverson in the move are his wife, Holly, and their three sons, Walker, 12, Shel, 3, and Canon, 2.
