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.

AP CEO to Retire

(AP/Richard Drew)

Tom Curley, The Associated Press’ President and CEO since 2003, is stepping down at the end of this year. The AP’s board of directors, lead by Mary Junck, is currently searching for his successor. Curley plans to stay on until his spot is filled, to ensure a smooth transition.

Under Curley’s direction the AP expanded digitally, won two Pulitzer’s for photography and opened bureau’s in Pakistan and North Korea.

“He [Curley] was a visionary who understood the need for AP to quickly adapt to new digital times, a transformative leader who created innovative new business opportunities for our industry and an indefatigable newsman who made sure AP remained the definitive trusted source for breaking news,” said William Dean Singleton, chairman of the AP Board of Directors.

“There is this passion, this commitment to journalism in its purest form that makes it unique on the planet,” said Curley. “Nowhere else does anyone have such a direct opportunity to commit journalism and have as much impact as they do here. I got to be a part of it, and play a role in its mission to break news first from around the world. I’ve been honored to work for AP.”
