MaineToday Media, which publishes the Portland Press Herald, Kennebec Journal and Morning Sentinel newspapers, announced two big changes last week.
Tim Archambault, once online manager for the Bangor Daily News, is MTM’s new vice president of new media and digital operations, the company announced Thursday.
Perhaps more interesting is that the Kennebec Journal and Morning Sentinel now have new publishers. Tony Ronzio, formerly managing editor of the KJ, has been promoted to editor and publisher of the same paper, and Bill Thompson, formerly editor of both papers, will now serve as editor and publisher of the Morning Sentinel. The promotions were announced to the staff Friday and to readers Sunday morning. It will be interesting to see how this affects the coverage by both papers — fewer A1 letters from the publisher, perhaps? — and cooperation between all three papers. The company has not announced how the changes will affect Jim Evans, managing editor of the Morning Sentinel.
