The Waco Tribune-Herald and the Bryan-College Station Eagle newspapers have new publishers.
Midlands Newspapers Incorporated said Tuesday that Eagle Publisher Jim Wilson was taking the same job in Waco, and Crystal Dupre, publisher of the Star in Meridian, Mississippi would replace Wilson.
The company, a subsidiary of the Omaha World-Herald Company, said Dupre would report to Wilson. Both newspapers were bought earlier this year by billionaire Warren Buffett's company, Berkshire Hathaway Incorporated.
Wilson has been publisher of the Eagle for the past five years of his 33-year newspaper career. Dupre was an advertising director before becoming a publisher in 2002.
The appointments are effective September 10th.
