ANDERSON, Ind. – Veteran newspaper executive Robyn McCloskey will be the new publisher of The Herald Bulletin, replacing Beverly Joyce, who is departing for another career opportunity.
Scott Underwood, editor of The Herald Bulletin and regional editor of CNHI newspapers in Indiana and Illinois, will take on the role of general manager at the Anderson newspaper.
He will assist McCloskey in managing operations at The Herald Bulletin, retaining his editor responsibilities at the newspaper and regionally.
"Anderson and the surrounding cities and towns form a great community, and I look forward to getting to know the people of Madison County better," McCloskey said.
"I'm thrilled be to part of the outstanding team at The Herald Bulletin. Our mission will remain unchanged: to provide the best local news coverage for Anderson and the Madison County area."
McCloskey is also publisher of CNHI newspapers in Kokomo, Logansport and Terre Haute. A native of Indianapolis, she has worked in Indiana newspapers for about three decades, serving in leadership roles in publishing and advertising.
Donna Barrett, CNHI president and CEO, described McCloskey as an accomplished media executive whose leadership skills will help strengthen the paper in print and online. “She has the experience, energy and vision to deliver quality results for The Herald Bulletin’s employees, readers and advertisers,” Barrett said.
Barrett thanked Joyce for her “contributions to the paper’s success.” A veteran of the newspaper and advertising industries, Joyce has served as publisher of The Herald Bulletin since March 2015.
"My team at The Herald Bulletin has been instrumental in helping me achieve some of my highest and most gratifying professional achievements, and for that I will always be grateful," Joyce said.
"I am also grateful to the community and my wonderful business colleagues in Madison County for their support. I will miss everyone, but I know The Herald Bulletin is in great hands."
Underwood has been editor of The Herald Bulletin since 2007. He’s worked closely with McCloskey in his role as regional editor for CNHI papers in Kokomo, Logansport and Terre Haute.
"It's such a privilege to work with Robyn and the excellent teams across all departments at The Herald Bulletin," Underwood said. "We'll strive to continue providing topical, timely, important and interesting content for the Madison County area on all of our print and digital platforms."
