Journal Register Company names new editor in chief

    Already tapped to head “Project Thunderdome,” Jim Brady has also been named as Journal Register Company’s new editor in chief.

    Brady joined the news company in March to spearhead its digital transformation, and now he’ll oversee the whole newsgathering process, as the Delaware County Daily Times reports.


    The Delco Times is just one of the local papers under the JRC umbrella. Others include the Pottstown Mercury, West Chester Daily Local and Tri-County Record.

    Brady’s history includes stints at AOL, and D.C.’s local news site, TBD.
