Daily News publisher takes job in Tennessee

Justin Wilcox is stepping down as publisher and advertising director of BANG's Daily News after two years to become publisher of the newspaper in Johnson City, Tenn., according to a report in that publication. In addition to heading the Menlo Park-based Daily News, Wilcox is also general manager of BANG's Silicon Valley Community Newspaper Group, which includes the Milpitas Post and Pacifica Tribune. In April, he will become publisher of the 30,000-circulation Johnson City Press, a paper that covers the eastern portion of that state. Wilcox joined BANG in September 2009 after serving as vice president of a group of Hearst-owned weeklies in San Antonio, Texas. No replacement has been named.
