Christy Johnson has been named managing editor of The Greenville Advocate, The Luverne Journal and The Lowndes Signal, three Alabama newspapers owned by Boone Newspapers, Inc.
She succeeds Kendra Majors, who served as regional editor of The Greenville Advocate, The Luverne Journal, The Lowndes Signal, The Demopolis Times, The Selma Times-Journal and associated digital and print products during the last year.
Dennis Palmer, publisher of the Advocate, Journal and Signal, said Johnson’s promotion to managing editor was an easy decision when considering her strengths.
“Since Christy has been working with us she’s shown an incredible enthusiasm and drive to help keep our communities informed about the happenings that are important to us all,” Palmer said. “She genuinely cares about the health and welfare of those we serve through the pages of our newspapers, and being from Crenshaw County, she understands what’s important, and what makes this area a special place to live and raise a family.”
