Gannett just announced that Jennifer Carroll, one of the prime architects of the Information Center model, has been named vice president of digital content for Gannett Digital; she'll work on new products in the division run by increasingly powerful Chief Digital Officer Chris Saridakis.
Also, Fort Myers News-Press Editor Kate Marymont replaces Carroll, but gets a different title: vice president/Information Center Content in the newspaper division. Marymont won kudos and high-profile news coverage for her Florida paper's role as a test site for the Information Center model, before it was rolled out companywide in late 2006. That model emphasized delivery of news and information to websites and mobile devices first, over the print paper. It's been a cornerstone of the company's flagging strategic plan.
No word on who replaces Marymont in Fort Myers.
Full disclosure: Marymont and I worked together at The Arkansas Gazette in Little Rock, before Gannett shut it down amid huge losses in October 1991.
