“I am excited that John’s experience will now extend to the Tahlequah Daily Press,” said Mike Beatty, CNHI regional executive for Oklahoma and publisher of the Joplin (Mo.) Globe. “His background in both print and online publishing will leverage the resources of Muskogee and Tahlequah to add value to both papers.”
Newby began his career at the Omaha World-Herald. He held management positions at newspapers in Iowa, Utah and Illinois before becoming publisher of the Muskogee Phoenix in January.
“My goal is to work with the dedicated staff to strengthen the Daily Press, making it even more fundamental to readers and advertisers.”
