Rick Green, president and publisher of The Des Moines Register, will become president and publisher of the The Cincinnati Enquirer, Gannett announced Wednesday.
Green will also become regional president of Gannett U.S. Community Publishing, according to the press release. He will replace Margaret Buchanan, who is retiring after more than a decade as publisher.
Before Green became publisher at The Register, he was vice president and editor there. During his tenure as editor at The Des Moines Register, the paper was criticized for publishing an interactive map that examined the distribution of security officers at school districts in Iowa. Critics said the map would allow a gunman to determine which schools would be susceptible to “a Sandy Hook-style attack,” according to Fox News.
