Steven Stiefel has been named the publisher of The Times-Journal in Fort Payne, Alabama, Owner Patrick Graham announced Thursday.
He succeeds Tricia Clinton-Dunne, who was publisher for just over five years and resigned Oct. 13 to accept a position as city treasurer at Fort Payne City Hall.
“Steven’s credentials as a community journalist locally are second to none,” Graham said. “Equally impressive is Steven’s background in newspaper management, global and national marketing and business ownership, all of which he will bring to bear in his new role as the publisher of his hometown newspaper. These important attributes combined with Steven’s love for our community and his extensive local institutional knowledge make him the ideal choice to lead The Times-Journal.”
Graham also owns the Jackson County Sentinel in Scottsboro, Alabama; The Sand Mountain Reporter in Albertville, Alabama; The Walton Tribune in Monroe, Georgia; and The Covington News.
