Patrick Dorsey named next Statesman publisher
SNPA President Patrick Dorsey, regional vice president of GateHouse Media's Coastal Publishing Group, was named publisher of the Austin (Texas) American-Statesman today.
"Patrick is one of the strongest publishers in GateHouse," said Bernie Szachara, president of GateHouse U.S. Newspaper Operations. "He is a passionate advocate for journalism and an effective champion for his staff. He is a strong community leader and a strategic executive who embraces changing business models, which is so critical today."
Dorsey will continue his vice president role overseeing the Statesman and more than a dozen newspapers in Florida and Alabama but will move to Austin to succeed Statesman Publisher Susie Biehle, who last week announced her retirement effective Nov. 30.
