KPC Media Group Inc. President Terry G. Housholder has announced that Randy C. Mitchell has joined the northeast Indiana media company as CEO.
Mitchell has three decades of experience in newspaper management and most recently as a group publisher at GateHouse Media Inc. in Newton, Kansas.
“Randy is a solid newspaperman with wide experience and enthusiasm for our industry,” said Housholder. “He knows Indiana, having been a newspaper publisher in Wabash and Peru, and will fit well into our communities here in northeast Indiana. He has the skills we need to continue to grow our operations and better serve our customers.”
Mitchell began his role as CEO on September 21, replacing Terry R. Ward, who took a group publisher’s position with Sound Publishing in Washington state.
“I am so pleased to join KPC Media Group,” said Mitchell. “I was drawn to the company by its strong commitment to the communities it serves in northeast Indiana, which is evident in its award-winning news coverage, strong digital products, community outreach and business partnerships,” he said. “When you find a media company with the kind of steady growth KPC has experienced, you know they are progressive which takes solid strategic visioning and a willingness to try new things. That’s what excites me most.”
