John Humenik Named President And Publisher Of The Arizona Daily Star

John M. Humenik has been promoted to president and publisher of the Arizona Daily Star, with responsibility also for its sales, marketing, production, circulation, human resources and finance operations.

Humenik, 47, has served as publisher and editor of the Daily Star since 2005. Succeeding him as editor is Bobbie Jo Buel, 53, who has been promoted from executive editor.

The Daily Star is owned by Lee Enterprises, Incorporated (NYSE: LEE). Its business operations are owned jointly by Lee and Gannett Co., Inc. (NYSE: GCI).

Greg Veon, Lee vice president for publishing, and Robert Dickey, president of Gannett’s U.S. Community Publishing, made the announcement.

“John’s accomplishments as publisher and editor of the Daily Star, as well as his leadership in the industry and deep involvement in the Tucson community, made him the ideal choice for leading the entire operation,” Veon said. “He is well respected within both Lee and Gannett.”

Veon said Humenik also will continue as publisher team leader for Lee newspapers in Flagstaff, Ariz., and Lihue, Hawaii.

“John is an outstanding and proven strategic leader with a strong commitment to and knowledge of the Tucson area,” Dickey said. “His keen understanding about all aspects of this market and our operations will be invaluable in his new role as president and publisher and will further strengthen the performance of the entire team.”

“This is an exciting day for our entire Tucson organization and for me because it represents a great opportunity,” Humenik said. “At first glance, it means clarity about how our operation will function, but much deeper it reveals the strength of the partnership we enjoy between Lee Enterprises and Gannett in Tucson. As one operating unit, we have a significant opportunity to reach even higher and move with an even greater sense of urgency. At the end of the day, it’s about helping our customers, readers and community. It’s about delivering value and leadership at every level of our organization.”
