Tim Kennedy, publisher and CEO of The Morning Call in Allentown, Pa., is leaving and will be replaced by Tim Ryan, who is adding the position to his duties as publisher and CEO of the Baltimore Sun Media Group, Tribune Publishing announced late Thursday.
Kennedy is leaving effective April 6 and Ryan assumes the duties April 7. In December 2008 Ryan’s role in the Baltimore Sun group was expanded to include the Lehigh Valley region. Ryan has been CEO of the Sun since March 2007.
In a memo to employees, Tribune Publishing Executive Vice President Bob Gremillion said, “This type of organizational change is not uncommon in today’s changing landscape for media companies. We have implemented similar arrangements at Tribune properties in Florida and Connecticut with beneficial results. Under Tim Ryan’s leadership, we expect to do the same as we move forward with The Morning Call and Baltimore Sun Media Group.”
