TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) — Ed Fowler is leaving his position as vice president of operations at The Anniston Star to be editor and publisher of The Daily Home in Talladega.
Both papers are owned by Consolidated Publishing Co. For the past two years, Fowler has served as publisher of The Daily Home. The newspaper announced (bit.ly/T10sw4) that on Sept. 4 he will also take on the duties of editor.
Fowler said he spent the first 20 years of his career making editorial decisions and he's looking forward to doing it again.
Star Publisher H. Brandt Ayers said Fowler's new position will provide an increased sense of unity and consolidation across the company.
Fowler, 65, worked as managing editor of The Tuscaloosa News and then the Montgomery Advertiser before joining Consolidating Publishing in 1992.
