The interim publisher of The Florida Times-Union said Wednesday that he and the interim editor are to assume their posts permanently.
James Currow, who came to the job in December, said he received inquiries on the editor position from around the country, but decided Frank Denton was the best fit.
“I think Frank has done a great job of coming in here and getting to know the community, working with our editors to assess the quality of the newspaper and trying to determine how we can improve all we do for our readers and advertisers,” Currow said.
Denton will remain vice president for journalism at Morris Communications Co., the paper’s parent company _ a position he held before taking the interim editor job in January. Denton was formerly editor and vice president of The Tampa Tribune and before that served as editor of the Wisconsin State Journal for 17 years.
Currow remains the executive vice president of newspapers at Morris. He previously served as vice president of sales and marketing at The Miami Herald.
