DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Advocate-Messenger in Danville has a new publisher.

The paper reports (http://bit.ly/1mb4gsA) that when Scott Schurz departs as publisher of Advocate Communications on July 7, it will be the first time in more than 35 years there will not be a Schurz atop the masthead.

The new publisher is Larry Hensley. Along with The Advocate, Hensley will serve as publisher for The Winchester Sun, The Jessamine Journal and The Interior Journal in Stanford, all members of Advocate Communications.

Hensley comes to Danville from another Schurz Communications property, the Petoskey Media Group in Michigan. There he served as chief financial officer and general manager.

Schurz is moving to company headquarters in Mishawaka, Indiana, where he has been promoted to vice president of corporate development.
