GateHouse Media online guru has left the building

Howard Owens is no longer the director of online news projects for GateHouse Media, according to Media Nation.

The departure of Owens, whose allegedly brilliant ideas have included burying two GateHouse newspapers in Kansas and leaving them with only an online presence, was revealed in a company memo written by President Kyle Davis and obtained by Media Nation:

I'm pleased to announce an expansion of the services provided to you and our employees through the GateHouse News Division. Beginning today, Brad Dennison, VP News, will assume the additional responsibilities inherent in overseeing our online news operations and support. Brad will be incorporating Howard Owens' duties, as Howard has left the company. Howard did volumes to advance our digital strategy and leaves GateHouse with our deep appreciation.

GateHouse Media owns The Carthage Press, Neosho Daily News, and more than 300 publications across the United States.
