Former Union-Tribune Publisher Takes Over at Denver Post

This morning, employees at the Denver Post met their new incoming president and CEO. Per a dispatch on the 120-year-old daily’s website, former San Diego Union-Tribune publisher Ed Moss will assume those duties on February 20.

There’s some interesting background in the Post piece by Aldo Svaldi that involves the paper’s parent company, Digital First Media. Moss, who was also named executive vice-president of that parent, has been on Digital First chairman William Dean Singleton‘s radar since the mid-1990s:

Singleton said he first got to know Moss in 1996, and eventually hired him in 2007 to oversee the Los Angeles Newspaper Group. “I was distraught when he came to me and said he was going to San Diego,” Singleton said. As a potential bidder for that newspaper, Singleton watched its performance closely.

Despite the difficult business environment, Moss took a barely break-even company to one with a $30 million in operating profits. “It was one of the best newspaper turnarounds I have ever seen,” Singleton said.

Moss exited the Tribune ranks last December when the paper was sold to Douglas Manchester. He replaces Jerry Grilly, who is retiring today.
