McLEAN, VA – Charles W. Nutt, formerly president and publisher of The Courier News in Bridgewater, NJ, has been named president and publisher of The Daily Journal in Vineland, NJ. He replaces Nancy Monaghan, who has retired.
Nutt is returning to Vineland, where he was editor, then president, publisher and editor, from 1998 to 2000.
Replacing Nutt as publisher in Bridgewater is Ketan Gandhi, who will retain his responsibilities as president and publisher at the Home News Tribune in East Brunswick, NJ.
“These are two fine executives, committed to New Jersey and the best journalism for their communities. I am pleased we have this type of management talent available in the region and at Gannett,” said Sue Clark-Johnson, president of Gannett’s Newspaper Division.
“Nancy Monaghan is a true Gannett executive; dedicated to the company, hard-working and an innovative collaborator,” said Robert Collins, senior group president of the Atlantic Coast Newspaper Group and president and publisher of the Asbury Park (NJ) Press. “I would like to thank her sincerely for all of her contributions to our group and to our company.”
Nutt began his career as a reporter at the Bridgewater paper in 1972 after graduation from Syracuse University where he received a BA in English and an MA in Journalism. He worked at Bridgewater through 1979 before leaving to work at the New York Times and The Express in Easton, PA.
