“Steve’s talent for journalism and his passion to serve the community, which served him so well in Palm Springs, will continue to grow and flourish in Salem,” Bob Dickey, president of Gannett U.S. Community Publishing, said in a statement. “The Desert Sun community has said again and again what a great presence Steve had there and how lucky Salem is to be getting such an accomplished leader. We feel the same way.”
