Belo names execs for newspaper group

Two longtime Belo Corporation executives have been named to head the newspaper group recently spun-off by the Dallas-based outfit (h/t Romenesko):

Robert W. Decherd, Belo's chairman and chief executive, will assume the role of chairman, president and CEO of the newspaper company, as previously announced. He will also serve as nonexecutive chairman of Belo, the television company.

James M. Moroney III will become executive vice president of the newspaper company, with oversight responsibility for papers including The News, The Press-Enterprise of Riverside, Calif., and the Providence (R.I.) Journal.

Mr. Moroney will continue to serve as publisher and CEO of The News , and he will replace Mr. Decherd on the board of The Providence Journal Co. Mr. Moroney will also join Belo Corp.'s board of directors after the spinoff.

"Jim has done an outstanding job as publisher and CEO of The Dallas Morning News since he assumed the position in 2001," Mr. Decherd said. "He has been a driving force in leading numerous transformational initiatives that have improved Belo's newspaper products and operations."

Skip Cass will also serve as executive vice president of the newspaper company after the spinoff, in the same role he now has overseeing Belo's companywide Internet, business development and technology activities.

Mr. Moroney and Mr. Cass will both report to Mr. Decherd.
