Amy Glennon has been named publisher of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, succeeding Michael Joseph, who moves to an executive position at Cox Media Group.
Glennon is a 20-year veteran of the AJC who started in the newsroom and has held leadership positions in both news and business operations. Her most recent post was vice president of audience.
“I look forward to building on the AJC’s current momentum, tapping into the abilities, energy and passion of those around me, as we continue moving into the future together,” said Glennon, a University of Georgia graduate who is 44.
The change comes as the AJC continues to reshape its news and business operations to broaden its digital reach while maintaining strong print products.
Joseph said Glennon is “an effective, collaborative and innovative leader, which she has demonstrated in a wide range of newspaper roles.”
Joseph, who had been AJC publisher since 2009, will be an executive vice president at Cox Media Group, which operates Atlanta-based Cox Enterprises’ newspaper, television and radio properties around the country. He succeeds Alex Taylor, who was promoted to senior vice president at Cox Communications.
In his new role Joseph will have responsibility for all of CMG’s newspapers, which also include the Dayton Daily News, Austin American-Statesman and Palm Beach Post. He’ll also oversee radio and television operations in Ohio and Louisville, Ky. Another executive vice president, Bill Hoffman, will oversee other television and radio operations including WSB-TV in Atlanta. Atlanta radio operations will report to Ben Reed, a group vice president.
Cox Media Group also announced it has named Neil Johnston executive vice president, strategy and digital innovation. He was previously chief financial officer. Replacing Johnston as CFO is Charles Odom, previously vice president of finance.
