Posted online
McLean, Va.-based media holding company Gannett Co. Inc. has named a new president and publisher for the Springfield News-Leader.

Linda Greiwe, who will take her position Oct. 11, succeeds Thomas Bookstaver, who is retiring after 37 years with Gannett.

Greiwe, current president and publisher of Gannett-owned Newspaper Network of Central Ohio, additionally will hold the position of West Group vice president of Gannett subsidiary U.S. Community Publishing - giving her responsibility over the markets in Mountain Home, Ark., St. Cloud, Minn., and Sioux Falls, S.D. Bookstaver also held the position, according to a Gannett news release.

"Tom has had a terrific career at Gannett. He has played an important role in helping Gannett move forward and meet consumers' changing needs," Robert Dickey, president of Gannett's U.S. Community Publishing, said in the release. "He leaves a strong team in place and Linda will build on his successes, finding new ways to grow our business and better serve our customers."

Greiwe has been a Gannett employee since 1987, when she started in advertising at the Green Bay Press-Gazette in Wisconsin. She was named president and publisher of the Newspaper Network of Central Ohio in early 2008.

Gannett Co. Inc. (NYSE: GCI) publishes 82 daily U.S. newspapers, including USA Today, and more than 600 magazines. It also operates 23 television stations in 19 U.S. markets.
