Bruce Winges, 52, was named vice president and editor of the Akron Beacon Journal on Friday.
He succeeds Mizell Stewart III, who was the top editor at the paper, and left to take the editor slot at the Evansville (Ind.) Courier & Press.
Winges has been at the Beacon Journal since 1982, serving in various editing positions. Black Press bought the paper last year.
Publisher Edward Moss said in an article in the newspaper, “I’m confident Bruce is the right guy at the right time.”
Winges will hire a managing editor.
