KENAI, Alaska (AP) - A man with 25 years’ experience in newspaper operations and management, sales and circulation will become the new publisher of the Peninsula Clarion.

The Clarion reports (https://is.gd/Z2XtrO) Vitto Kleinschmidt will succeed Stan Pitlo, who is retiring as publisher of the newspaper in Kenai.

Pitlo started his newspaper career working in advertising for the Anchorage Times. He also worked in broadcasting before joining the Clarion in 1993. He was named publisher in 1999.

William S. Morris III, chairman and CEO of Morris Communications, called Pitlo “one of the finest managers I have ever worked with.”

Kleinschmidt and his wife have two daughters, ages 15 and 17.
