FAIRMONT, W. Va. –Titus Workman, a veteran newspaper executive, has been appointed publisher of the Times West Virginian.
The 63-year-old native of Logan returns to West Virginia after moving away in 1998, when he started working for a paper in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Workman first started working in advertising at the local paper in Logan before becoming advertising director at the Dominion Post in Morgantown. He has held positions at a few other papers over the years, including the publisher position at the Roanoke Rapids Daily Herald. Workman said he is excited to get back into that role in Fairmont.
“I am thrilled that Titus is the new publisher-advertising director at the Times West Virginian,” said Randy Mooney, group publisher for CNHI, parent company of the Times West Virginian. “The experience and skill set that he brings is exactly what we need to lead this newspaper into the future. Titus’ understanding of the area and history of commitment to the communities where he has served will prove to make him an asset to Fairmont and Marion County.”
Being an asset to the city and county are Workman’s goals for the paper, first and foremost. He reiterated a quote he said previously in his career, which he felt still holds relevance in his new position.
“It’s a challenging time for newspapers, but there is a really good future,” Workman said. “For me, it’s about trying to do things that make our newspaper a great product for both our readers and our advertisers. The Times West Virginian is important to people in Fairmont, and we will strive to make it more so in the months and years ahead.”
