Rodney Mahone's job expands to include Macon Telegraph
McClatchy has announced that the role of Columbus Ledger-Enquirer President and Publisher Rodney Mahone is expanding. His new job title will be regional publisher for Georgia.
Mahone, 50, will oversee the Macon Telegraph operations in addition to his duties in Columbus. Don Bailey, president and publisher of the Telegraph, will be stepping down effective May 5. Mahone will assume the duties beginning May 8.
Mahone has been president and publisher in Columbus for seven years and will continue those duties. After joining the Ledger-Enquirer in 1990, he rose through the ranks. He started in circulation, which is now audience development, then moved into advertising and held various leadership roles before being named vice president of that department in 2009.
In the reorganization of the Telegraph, Macon Advertising Vice President Travis Knight will also assume the role of general manager, reporting to Mahone. Macon Telegraph Executive Editor Sherrie Marshall will also report directly to Mahone.
