Mindi Keirnan, vice president of operations for Knight Ridder’s newspapers, was named general manager of the San Jose (Calif.) Mercury News. New products and services at the newspaper increased the need for the position, which had been left vacant for several years.
Keirnan’s old position will not be filled immediately. Instead, her duties will be distributed among three other top-level managers: Steve Rossi and Frank McComas, both senior vice presidents for operations, and Joseph “Chip” Visci, former assistant to chairman and ceo Tony Ridder. In addition, Visci was named assistant vice president. The changes took effect Sept. 7.
Knight Ridder publishes 31 daily newspapers and operates 45 Knight Ridder Real Cities Web sites.
