Jim Brady will orchestrate Journal Register Company’s daily news coverage and will directly oversee all newsgathering operations, says a release. The former WashingtonPost.com executive editor and TBD.com general manager joined Journal Register in March and has been responsible for the ongoing development of Project Thunderdome, the company’s plan for engaging audience and creating content across all platforms and geographies. He says in the release:
While the newspaper industry has undoubtedly suffered in the past decade, I maintain it’s an amazing time to be in journalism: we’re reinventing our relationship with our customers, embracing the exciting new tools of journalism, experimenting with new mobile platforms and exploring partnerships that would have been unthinkable 10 years ago. We want to be — and need to be — at the forefront of all of these new opportunities.
