HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The Tribune Publishing Company has named Rick Daniels as the publisher and CEO of the Hartford Courant Media Group.
Daniels replaces Nancy Meyer, who is leaving to become publisher and CEO of the Orlando Sentinel Media Group.
The appointments were announced on Friday and take effect early next month.
Daniels served most recently as chief operating officer at GoLocal24, a Rhode Island-based digital news company. He worked previously as president of GateHouse Media New England and also spent 23 years at The Boston Globe, including six as president and general manager.
Meyer is an eight-year veteran of the Courant. She led the media group’s advertising department before taking over as publisher last November.
