Veteran journalist Rana Cash will lead news gathering for the Savannah (Georgia) Morning News as the publication’s news director. She also will serve as executive editor for the USA TODAY Network’s two other Georgia news organizations, The Augusta Chronicle and Athens Banner-Herald, and coordinate statewide news coverage among the three newspapers and their websites.
“I look forward to sharing the stories of Georgians and making an impact in our communities,” Cash said. “We want to meet readers where they are and provide coverage that is timely, relevant and interesting every single day.”
Cash will become the first African American to lead the Savannah newsroom in the publication’s 170-year history.
She comes to her new position from the Louisville Courier Journal, a Gannett publication in Kentucky where she’s served as sports director since 2018.
