Longtime Savannah (Georgia) Morning News Executive Michael Traynor has left the organization as part of a corporate management restructuring, parent company Gannett has announced.
Traynor had led the local publication and the SavannahNow.com website since 2008, first as publisher and most recently as market leader. He had served as the group vice president/sales-Georgia since the merger of GateHouse Media and Gannett earlier this year. That position and many others in sales leadership were consolidated to create a more centralized organization.
Advertising director Chris Corey has been named the Savannah Morning News market leader. Rana L. Cash joined the news organization as editor last month.
