Santa Cruz publisher takes top job in Boise

Mike Jung, a former Mercury News advertising executive who became publisher of the Santa Cruz Sentinel in 2009, has been named publisher and president of the McClatchy Co.’s Idaho Statesman in Boise. A story in the Statesman said Jung, 53, was recruited by McClatchy in part because of his accomplishments in Santa Cruz, where the Sentinel won the general excellence award from the CNPA this spring. The Statesman's daily circulation is about 50,000, double that of the Sentinel at 23,600. (Photo credit: Katherine Jones, Idaho Statesman)

Any move where MediaNews is in your rearview mirror is a good move.

I worked with Mike in Long Beach. He is a great newspaper man and is a great hire for Boise.
