From the National Press Club:
Bill McCarren, a 20-year Club member with more than two decades of management experience in the media world, assumes the Club’s top management position July 9. General manager John Bloom, who is resigning after 15 years of service including 10 as general manager, will stay on board until July 20. “Bill knows the importance of the Club for making news, professional development and spotlighting media issues including protecting free speech,” said Maureen Groppe, chairwoman of the National Press Club Board of Governors. The Board of Governors selected McCarren from finalists proposed by a search committee of two former presidents and a current officer. If you see him at the Club, be sure to give him a hearty welcome!
