USA TODAY Combines Online and Print Newsrooms

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 9:30 pm

USA TODAY President and Publisher Craig Moon and USATODAY.com Senior Vice President and Publisher Jeff Webber announced today that the website newsroom will be combined with the newspaper newsroom to create a single USA TODAY news operation.

Additionally, USA TODAY Editor Ken Paulson announced that USATODAY.com Vice President and Editor-in-Chief Kinsey Wilson has been promoted to executive editor of USA TODAY, joining current executive editor John Hillkirk in that role. Hillkirk and Wilson will share oversight of daily news operations and content development, reporting directly to Paulson.

Moon and Webber said the move to combine the newsrooms is a response to the growing importance of the Internet as a vehicle for news delivery. The new structure will allow both operations to begin working together to make the transition from a world of stand-alone news products to one in which news is available where, when and how consumers desire.
