A long journalism career in New York and New Jersey, punctuated by historic local and national events and a newsroom Pulitzer Prize, have brought David Ng to The Providence (Rhode Island) Journal as the new executive editor.
Ng follows Alan Rosenberg, who retired in December 2020 following almost 43 years at the newspaper in various roles.
“The goal of any paper is to be the town square for its citizens whether it’s a city, state or nation, a place where we gather to share our stories and to exchange ideas and debate our opinions,” Ng said. “It used to be just print but now it’s also a digital town hall, as well. These are tough times and people are making tough decisions. And our neighbors, friends and families need facts, information that they can trust, to make those tough decisions. And the powers that be need to know that. The Providence Journal’s soul is fulfilling that mission. I hope to keep fulfilling that mission for readers, present and future.”
