The Alamogordo Daily News has a new managing editor, Michael Johnson.
Johnson joined the newspaper this month from Cody, Wyo., where he was managing editor at the Cody Enterprise.
Johnson studied English and communications at Ohio University, then became a sports writer, sports editor and photographer at the South Haven (Mich.) Tribune. He subsequently worked at The Morning Journal in Lorain, Ohio; as a sports editor in Chillicothe, Ohio, and at other newspapers.
He said he wants the Daily News to focus on getting more local content and more interaction on the newspaper’s Web site.
“I try not to take myself too seriously,” Johnson said. “We just have to take it one day at a time.”
