Sue Rosiek, a veteran Detroit-area community journalist and publisher, has been named to head the Livingston County (Mich.) Daily Press & Argus and Livingstondaily.com. The appointment is effective Sept. 4, the date upon which Livingston general manager and executive editor Rich Perlberg has announced he will retire.
Rosiek, publisher and executive editor of Observer & Eccentric Media, will also continue to oversee the 13 O&E suburban Detroit properties, which include the Livonia Observer and the Birmingham Eccentric, and Hometownlife.com. O&E and Livingston are both owned by Gannett Co., Inc., one of the nation’s leading media and marketing solutions companies, with holdings in digital, mobile, broadcast and print media.
“Sue will bring outstanding experience in community journalism to her new Livingston responsibilities, and is well qualified to carry on the tradition of excellence at the Press & Argus that Rich Perlberg built,” Gannett Michigan president Joyce Jenereaux said.
Rosiek has spent more than 25 years in journalism, primarily at Observer & Eccentric, in a variety of reporting and editing roles. She has served as publisher and executive editor of Observer & Eccentric Media since September 2009.
