Lancaster Newspapers Inc. said Thursday that it has named Beverly R. “Peggy” Steinman to succeed the late John M. “Jack” Buckwalter as chairman of the seven Steinman Enterprises companies.
The family-run company’s other businesses include Lancaster Farming Inc., Lancaster County Weeklies Inc., Steinman Coal Co. and Steinman Park Restaurant, which operates The Pressroom restaurant in Lancaster.
Steinman, daughter of late newspaper publisher Col. James Hale Steinman, said the new structure will allow Steinman Enterprises to address the challenges caused by a poor economy and the changing media industry.
Also Thursday, Dennis A. Getz was designated as vice chairman of two Steinman Enterprises businesses, Intelligencer Printing Co. and Delmarva Broadcasting Co.
Both appointments will be proposed to Steinman Enterprises directors at their September board meetings.
The company also announced that Harold E. “Chip” Miller will continue as president and chief executive officer of Lancaster Newspapers, the largest of the company’s businesses.
Lancaster Newspapers produces the Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era, the Sunday News and LancasterOnline.com.
