MODESTO, Calif. (AP) - The McClatchy Co. has named Eric E. Johnston the new president and publisher of The Modesto Bee, the first time the newspaper chain has selected a leader from the digital ranks.
The 37-year-old Johnston was The Modesto Bee's vice president of
interactive media and classified advertising. McClatchy announced
Johnston's promotion Wednesday.
Johnston replaces Margaret R. Randazzo, who resigned to join a San Jose-based solar energy company.
Johnston joined The Bee in 2000.
