Rick Green Promoted To President And Publisher Of The Des Moines Register And U.S. Community Publishing Regional President

MCLEAN, Va., Aug. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Gannett Co., Inc. (NYSE: GCI) announced today Rick Green has been promoted to president and publisher of The Des Moines Register and regional president of U.S. Community Publishing (USCP) Central Group. Green had been vice president and editor in Des Moines since 2011 and has served as co-acting publisher since May.

"Rick has been a hard working, award-winning reporter and editor," said Robert Dickey, president of USCP. "He has spent his entire career working to create a positive impact in the communities he's covered, including Des Moines, where he and his team received national attention for their innovative and comprehensive digital coverage of the Iowa Caucuses. Rick's promotion to publisher and regional president is both hard-earned and well-deserved."

Prior to joining Des Moines, Green was executive editor at The Desert Sun (CA) in Palm Springs. Green has also worked at The Cincinnati Enquirer, where he was assistant managing editor, business editor, suburban bureau chief and reporter; the Chillicothe (OH) Gazette, where he was a reporter; and the Coshocton (OH) Tribune, where he started during his sophomore year of high school and served as reporter, photographer and sports columnist.

Green has been with Gannett for more than 25 years and has been named a Gannett Newsroom Supervisor of the Year and twice earned Gannett's President's Ring honors acknowledging the performance of top editors. Green will report to Laura Hollingsworth, whom he succeeds as publisher in Des Moines. Hollingsworth is USCP Central Group president.

"Rick is the right next leader at the right time for Register Media and he's earned this role. I've known Rick for several years and he cares very much about Des Moines and Iowa and making it a better place to call home. He'll continue to ensure The Register's position as one of the most respected, well-read and highest quality local news and information outlets in the country, while building on new opportunities for a new era," said Hollingsworth. 

An Ohio native, Green has a degree in journalism studies from Ohio University. He and his wife, Laura, have four children.
