Bart Leath has been named publisher of the Minot (N.D.) Daily News. He succeeds the retiring Jim Eykyn, who had held the position since 2000.
Leath has spent the past nine years working at the headquarters of Ogden Newspapers in Wheeling, W.Va. Ogden publishes 40 daily newspapers around the country, including the Minot Daily News.
“My family is excited about moving to Minot. I’ve been working with Jim for the past four years, so I’ve visited Minot many times,” Leath told the Daily News.
Prior to his time at Ogden, Leath was the publisher of the Sentinel in Lewistown, Pa., as well as the publisher of the Ennis (Texas) Daily News.
