LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - Jerome Ferson has resigned as publisher of Ledger Media Group, and the former publisher of the Ocala Star-Banner has been named interim publisher.

Company officials made the announcement Tuesday, according to a story on The Ledger’s website (http://bit.ly/1d61AXe).

The 41-year-old Ferson joined The Ledger in June 2007, becoming its 11th publisher. He continued to lead the newspaper after its acquisition by Daytona-based Halifax Media Group from The New York Times Co. in 2012.

No reason was given for the resignation. Ferson says he intends to stay in Lakeland and maintain his commitments with local organizations.

Allen Parsons has been named interim publisher of Ledger Media Group. He is the former publisher of the Ocala Star-Banner, which is owned by Halifax Media.
