The editor of a magazine in Utah has become the managing editor for the Mansfield News Journal.
David Kennard started the new job Monday after working as executive editor for “Utah Business” in Salt Lake City.
He succeeds Carl Hunnell, who stepped down to take a position at the Richland County Children Services agency.
The 46-year-old Kennard previously was publisher and editor at the Troy Daily News in Ohio and worked at newspapers in Idaho, Washington, Oregon and California.
The News Journal is owned by the Gannett Co. and has a daily circulation of about 21,000.
