Journal Communications Names Jason Graham Chief Financial Officer

Journal Communications (NYSE: JRN), a diversified media company with operations in television and radio broadcasting, publishing and digital media, today announced that Jason Graham has been named Senior Vice President of Finance and Controller, effective immediately, and Chief Financial Officer, effective upon the filing of Journal’s 2013 Form 10-K. Graham will report to Steven J. Smith, Chairman and CEO of Journal Communications.

Graham has served as Journal Communications’ Vice President/Controller since June 2012. He was formerly Vice President and Corporate Controller at Brookdale Senior Living, Inc., the largest owner and operator of senior living communities in the U.S. Prior to that role, Graham held roles as senior manager at KPMG LLP, Assistant Controller with GE Healthcare, and Corporate Accounting Manager at APW, Ltd. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Accounting from Marquette University and is a certified public accountant.

“As Journal’s Vice President/Controller, Jason has done an excellent job leading our Accounting, Billing, Accounts Payable, Payroll and Tax teams. He has also contributed to our strategic planning and growth initiatives, which will continue to be an integral part of his expanded role as CFO,” Smith said.

In addition to overseeing the Finance, Accounting, Treasury, Investor Relations and Tax teams, Graham will also assume responsibility for corporate Information Technology operations.

Andre Fernandez, President of Journal Communications, has also been named Chief Operating Officer, effective upon the filing of Journal’s 2013 Form 10-K. He will now assume operational oversight of the company’s Publishing and Broadcast segments. Elizabeth Brenner, President and Publisher of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and Executive Vice President of Journal Communications, will report to Fernandez. Debbie Turner, Executive Vice President of Television, and Steve Wexler, Executive Vice President of Radio, will continue to report to Fernandez.

Fernandez also assumes expanded corporate responsibilities, including Corporate Human Resources.
