The publisher of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Journal Communications, today announced that they had named Pamela Henson as regional president of Gannett Wisconsin Media and publisher of Post-Crescent Media in Appleton, Wisconsin.

Henson was previously Senior Vice President of Advertising, Marketing, and Digital Sales at Journal Communications. Henson also spent a little over a year at Hearst’s San Francisco Chronicle as Director of Strategic Development. Henson has also worked for Yellowbook, the Denver Newspaper Agency, and the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

“Pam brings an absolute love of Wisconsin as well as many strong relationships with both newsmakers and businesses across the state,” said Laura Hollingsworth, central group president of Gannett U.S. Community Publishing in the announcement “She’ll be an excellent and active addition to the Northeastern Wisconsin business and leadership community.”

Journal Communications recently merged its newspaper properties with those of E.W. Scripps to form a purely newspaper company that will be renamed Journal Media Group. Meanwhile, Scripps picked up the broadcast properties of Journal Communications and will continue to function under the E.W. Scripps, but now only with broadcast properties.

      I think you’ll find that the newspaper, despite the swapping of properties with Scripps, still has phone lines for you to call.
