A longtime Journal Register Co. executive is the new publisher of the New Haven Register, the company’s flagship newspaper.
Edward Condra had been serving as its senior vice president of operations. His appointment as publisher became effective Monday.
He joined the Yardley, Pa.-based Journal Register Co. in 1991 and has held numerous positions during his tenure, including advertising director of the Trentonian in Trenton, N.J. and publisher of The Troy (N.Y.) Record and Daily Local News in West Chester, Pa.
Condra replaces Kevin Walsh, who left the New Haven Register to become vice president of development for Yale-New Haven Hospital. Walsh had been publisher and CEO of the Register since 2002.
