Stillwater News Press Publisher Jill Hunt has announced her retirement from the Oklahoma daily. She joined the News Press staff in April 1998 and was promoted to publisher in October of 2019.
Editor Beau Simmons said he was glad for Hunt’s leadership during a critical time for the entire industry.
“Jill took over just before the pandemic struck, and we were lucky she was in that position,” he said. “She maintained a cool head during a tough time and really kept up our morale, as well as maintaining the product’s stability.”
CNHI, which owns the News Press, is conducting interviews for the next publisher.
