Chris Spangler leaving Daily Union after 42 1/2 years


After 42 1/2 years on the beat, longtime managing editor Christine Spangler is leaving the Daily Jefferson County Union in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, effective Nov. 20.

APG Media of Southern Wisconsin, which in December 2018 purchased the Daily Union and several newspapers across southern Wisconsin, is expanding the role of Scott Peterson, managing editor of the Watertown Daily Times, to oversee newsroom operations in both Watertown and Fort Atkinson.

“As part of a restructuring for the southern Wisconsin region, several positions within our regional newsroom were realigned. The editor position at the Daily Union held by Chris Spangler was changed to a regional position, which is held by Scott Peterson, regional editor for APG Media of Southern Wisconsin,” said Orestes Baez, APG regional president.
