Daily Advertiser/Daily World President and Publisher Judi Terzotis confirmed in an email Monday that the paper’s executive editor, Cindy McCurry-Ross, was named executive editor and vice president of content for one of the local paper’s sister media organizations, The News-Press in Ft. Myers, Fla.
McCurry-Ross served as the Advertiser’s executive editor and regional editor for Gannett Louisiana for the past 15 months. “In this short time, she has led the team through a reinvention of our content plan, redesign of our print edition and relaunched our digital platform,” Terzotis says. “She’s also launched a series of reader outreach programs including forums, reporter events and community engagement projects.”
Terzotis says she is in the process of recruiting a replacement.
