Jack McNeely, publisher of the Herald-Citizen, Cookeville, TN, and the Cleveland (TN) Daily Banner, is the new president of the Tennessee Press Association (TPA).
McNeely had served as publisher of some CNHI Kentucky newspapers in the early 2000s including the Morehead News, Grayson Journal Enquirer, Olive Hill Times and Greenup County News. From 2004 to 2012, Jack was publisher of the Somerset Commonwealth Journal.
“I am honored to serve as the next president of the Tennessee Press Association,” McNeely said. “I cannot think of a time in our 150-plus years when our mission of helping publishers of news and information achieve greater success has been more important. I look forward to working with my peers in a collective effort to turn challenges into opportunities.”
