McLEAN, VA – Gannett today announced two management changes related to the acquisition of newspapers in Tennessee:
Judi Terzotis, general manager of Gannett’s Middle Tennessee Community Newspaper Group, will be president and publisher of The Daily News Journal.
Michael Giangreco, general manager of The Tennessean’s Williamson A.M. section, will have the added responsibility of general manager of The Review Appeal.
Gannett acquired the two daily newspapers, two weekly newspapers and a monthly publication in the Murfreesboro area from Morris Multimedia Inc.
