Bobbie Roessner, former Courant managing editor who was unceremoniously dismissed from her job during one of the most volatile periods of the paper’s history, has re-emerged as executive editor for the Connecticut Hearst papers.
Quoting from the company’s press release:
As executive editor of Hearst Connecticut Newspapers, Roessner will oversee all editorial content andinitiatives at Hearst’s four dailies in the state (Connecticut Post in Bridgeport, The News-Times in Danbury, The Advocate in Stamford and Greenwich Time) and seven weekly newspapers in Fairfield County.
Bobbie was hired by Mark Aldam, who, like Bobbie, once worked for The Courant in a leadership capacity.
Good for Bobbie.
Now, if someone would only bring Cliff Teutsch out of mothballs.
