H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest, owner of The Inquirer's parent company, continued reshaping the senior leadership Tuesday by appointing Stan Wischnowski to the position of vice president, news operations for The Inquirer, Daily News, and Philly.com.
Wischnowski had been serving as the executive editor of The Inquirer.
Interstate General Media is the parent company of all three publications. Lenfest became the sole owner of IGM in June after buying the IGM shares held by the family of the late Lewis Katz. On May 27, Lenfest and Katz won an auction for IGM among the previous ownership group.
In an e-mail Tuesday to all IGM employees, Lenfest said Wischnowski "will report directly to me and will lead all three newsrooms in formulating their strategic plans, budgets, and staffing. Stan brings a broad and deep wealth of experience to this important position and is well prepared to serve as the primary liaison among the three newsrooms and their interaction with the publisher's office, in addition to our marketing, advertising, and legal departments."
