Oregon Editor Named Publisher in Colorado

By: Bart Smith, editor of The News-Review for the past 14 years, on Monday was named publisher of The Greeley (Colo.) Tribune. Both dailies are owned by Swift Communications.

Replacing Smith in Roseburg will be Vicki Menard, The News-Review's city editor for eight years.

As publisher in Greeley, Smith will have overall responsibility for the seven-day a week newspaper with a circulation of about 25,000. He also will oversee La Tribuna, a weekly Spanish-language newspaper, as well as other smaller print publications.

Smith joined The News-Review in 1993, after working as an editor and publisher on daily, twice-weekly and weekly newspapers in Wyoming, Montana and Idaho.

Menard, replacing Smith as editor, will supervise 23 newsroom employees. A native Oregonian, Menard joined The News-Review as a college intern in July 1983. She became a full-time reporter upon receiving her bachelor's degree in technical journalism from Oregon State University in 1986.
