New Publisher David Landsberg Leading The Herald Into Newspaper Industrys Multimedia Digital Future
Written by Miami Today on June 28, 2007
Following a controversy surrounding reporters being paid to appear on government-controlled media that led to the resignation of publisher Jesus Diaz Jr., new owner McClatchy Co. turned in October to longtime executive and Miami native David Landsberg to move its Miami Herald Media Co. into an uncertain media landscape.
The Landsberg era is off to an auspicious start: In April, the Herald won a Pulitzer Prize for local reporting for coverage of the county’s housing department.
As president and publisher, Mr. Landsberg oversees all news and business operations. He and wife Anoly have three daughters and live in South Miami.
