How USA Today Network Is Transforming for a Digital Future

'You've got to link the conversation with social'

Less than a year into her role as president of USA Today Network Marketing Solutions, Sharon Rowlands is creating what she calls “a sense of urgency” for the publisher of USA Today and more than 100 local news brands across the country. Rowlands, who came up through the tech ranks, is also CEO of ReachLocal, which USA Today parent Gannett acquired in 2016.
