Ohio paper names Ft. Valley grad executive editor
Hollis Towns, managing editor of The Cincinnati Enquirer since 2004, has been named executive editor.
In his new capacity, Towns, 43, will oversee The Enquirer's transformation into a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week news and information provider, with an emphasis on encouraging growth of the company's online and print titles.
"My primary responsibility will be to ensure a strong Enquirer brand, no matter the method of delivery. I welcome the challenge and the opportunity," said Towns, who was managing editor of the Kalamazoo (Mich.) Gazette prior to his arrival in Cincinnati 2½ years ago.
Towns is a 1984 graduate of Ft. Valley State University.
