Courier-Post and Daily Journal Get New Publisher

A Daily Journal vet moves up.

Gannett has named Joseph Calchi president and publisher of New Jersey’s Courier-Post and The Daily Journal. Calchi was most recently the Daily Journal’s general manager and ad director.

Calchi has been with The Daily Journal since 1985, when he joined as an account executive. He was elevated to advertising director in 1996, and added general manager to his role in 2010.

“There is no one that knows the southern New Jersey community better than Joe,” said Bob Dickey, president of Gannett’s U.S. community publishing, in a statement. “He’s spent most of his life in the area and will bring a great wealth of knowledge to his new role.”
