PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Republic has named Mi-Ai Parrish of the Kansas City Star as its new publisher.

Parrish has been publisher at the Kansas City newspaper for the last four years and previously held the top position at the Idaho Statesman in Boise. She replaces John Zidich, who was promoted to president of domestic publishing for Gannett Co.

In her time in Kansas City, the 44-year-old Parrish won praise for embracing digital media and engaging with readers and the community while improving the overall quality of the newspaper’s journalism.

She previously worked at newspapers in Minneapolis, San Francisco and Chicago and served as an editor at the Arizona Republic from 1999 to 2001.

Parrish said she looks forward to returning to Phoenix and building on the paper’s strong tradition of investigative journalism.
