Virginian-Pilot advertising vice president to add Daily Press to role
tronc, parent company of the Daily Press Media Group, has announced changes to its advertising division.
Kelly Till, vice president of advertising for The Virginian-Pilot in Norfolk, also will take on those responsibilities at the Daily Press in Newport News, according to a news release from Tronc's southeast general manager Nancy Meyer.
Till will lead strategy and will help define the direction of the two businesses as they work together to serve advertising customers in the market, Meyer said.
"I am extremely excited for the opportunity to work with a larger group of talented professionals and I am looking forward to driving positive results for our customers as a regional media group," Till said.
Kevin Warren, currently vice president of advertising at the Daily Press, will move to Chicago to be the digital general manager for the Chicago Tribune's advertising division.
Warren, who has been at the Daily Press since July 2017, said the Daily Press Media Group's advertising department has strengthened over the past year and the future couldn't look brighter after the Pilot acquisition.
"I'm very proud of the team and the work we've accomplished," Warren said. "I hope to help the company grow digital revenue and develop new digital revenue streams as well as new digital products."
The new roles will take effect July 9.
The change comes about a month after Tronc purchased The Virginian-Pilot. Marisa Porto, publisher and editor-in-chief of the Daily Press, was named executive editor of The Virginian-Pilot on June 14.
