Herald-Tribune's Matthew Sauer takes on new role, as publisher Patrick Dorsey heads to Texas


Sarasota Herald-Tribune Executive Editor Matthew Sauer is adding the title general manager and assuming a new role at the media company.

Sauer will continue to oversee the Herald-Tribune's newsroom but will now work with the media company's seasoned team of executives to continue its mission as the top information source and digital and print advertising platform in Southwest Florida.

Patrick Dorsey, the Herald-Tribune's publisher since 2012, is taking over as publisher at the newly acquired GateHouse Media newspaper the Austin American-Statesman. Dorsey will continue in his role as regional vice president of GateHouse's Coastal Group, a territory that includes the parent company's newspapers in Florida, Alabama and now the Statesman in Texas.

"It has been a privilege to lead the Herald-Tribune for the last six years and work with some of the best employees in the industry. I am very proud of this team and all we accomplished," Dorsey said. "While I am sad to leave the Herald-Tribune and the many friends we have made in Sarasota, I am very excited about the new opportunities in Austin. I also take comfort knowing they are in great hands with an amazing management team."
