Tribune Publishing, which owns daily newspapers including the Los Angeles Times and The Baltimore Sun, has appointed former New York Times executive Denise Warren to head digital strategy and operations.
She has also been tapped to lead the company’s six East Coast newspapers, which include the Orlando Sentinel and Hartford Courant.
In her role as president of digital and CEO of East Coast Publishing, she will work with Tribune executives to help optimize digital products and execute digital business plans.
Previously, she served as executive vice president of digital products & services at The New York Times.
Of her appointment, Warren said: “I care deeply about the mission of journalism and am proud to join Tribune Publishing to help further the transformational efforts underway with its iconic brands. Though a 167-year-old company, Tribune Publishing has the energy of a start-up necessary to win.”
Earlier this month, Tribune Publishing announced its plans to acquire the San Diego Union-Tribune for $85m.
