Publisher of Capital Journal announces plans to retire


John Clark, publisher of the Capital Journal in Pierre, South Dakota, has announced plans to retire at the end of January.

He said: "I have a 93-year-old mother in Chicago. I have a sister and three brothers, a son and daughter and two granddaughters, who all live in the Chicago area. I just think it’s time to get close to the family.”

Ken Harty, Wick’s group publisher for the Capital Journal and the papers in Williston, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls, said a search is on for a new publisher.
