Lee Enterprises of Davenport, Iowa, named Lisa Sievers to publisher of the Muscatine (Iowa) Journal. She succeeds Mark Roby who is now publisher of the Watertown (S.D.) Public Opinion.
Sievers, 42, worked at the newspaper from 1989 to 1997 before joining the financial staff at Lee’s corporate headquarters.
The Muscatine paper is the oldest in the Lee chain, dating to 1840. Samuel Clemens (AKA Mark Twain) wrote for the paper when he was a teenager.
