Publisher Clint Shelton announced Monday that Don Hudson, 49, of Madison, Mississippi, will replace Tom Wright on Dec. 16. as executive editor.
“Don’s passion for journalism, aggressive nature and team-building skills will help all of us in our goal of putting out a better paper today than we did yesterday,” Shelton said. Shelton said trying to find the right person to replace Wright was a difficult task. Hudson was selected from more than 50 applicants. He comes to The Decatur Daily from The Clarion-Ledger in Jackson, Miss., where the paper was recognized as a Pulitzer finalist.
