HENDERSON, Ky. (AP) — Tom Lovett has been named editor of The Gleaner in Henderson.
The Gleaner (http://bit.ly/1hSpmYe ) says Lovett is a longtime Owensboro resident and a veteran of The Evansville Courier & Press. Both papers are owned by The E.W. Scripps Co.
Courier Editor Tim Ethridge announced the move Thursday, and Lovett told members of The Gleaner staff he was happy and said he hoped to continue the newspaper's "history of being a really, really good newspaper."
Lovett will succeed David Dixon, who retired last year after more than 37 years in the newsroom.
