ELKO, Nev. (AP) - Nevada's Elko Daily Free Press and Idaho's Times-News in Twin Falls are looking for a new publisher.
After four years as publisher at both newspapers, John Pfeifer announced he's leaving to accept a job as vice president of sales and development for training for Community Publication Division of GateHouse Media Inc. based in Chicago.
The 55-year-old Pfeifer came to the Free Press as general manager in 2008, also serving as advertising director at the Times-News. In 2010 he was promoted to publisher of both Lee Enterprises newspapers.
A national search is now under way for a new publisher at both.
