STAMFORD, CONN. (AP) - Hearst Newspapers has appointed the former managing editor of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer as editor of The Advocate of Stamford and Greenwich Time.

David McCumber also will become editorial director of Hearst’s Connecticut Newspaper Group, which also includes the Connecticut Post, News-Times of Danbury and Brooks Community Newspapers. Hearst employs about 700 people in the state.

McCumber spent nine years as managing editor of The Post-Intelligencer, also owned by Hearst. The newspaper last month became the first large American newspaper to shift to an all-Web format because of falling advertising revenues.

“David has been a valuable member of the Hearst Newspapers team for the last decade and we are excited to have his leadership at The Advocate and Greenwich Time,” Hearst President Steven Swartz said in a release. “He will also bring a wealth of editorial experience and journalistic vision to all our of Connecticut papers.”

McCumber had been with the P-I since 1999 when he was hired as senior editor for projects. He also is the former executive editor of the Santa Barbara News-Press and former Sunday editor, city editor and assistant managing editor of the San Francisco Examiner.

Michelle McAbee, the publisher of The Advocate and Greenwich Time, did not immediately return a telephone call seeking comment.
