BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) - Former state Department of Agriculture spokesman Carl “Butch” Antolini has been named director communications for Gov.-elect Jim Justice.

The Register-Herald of Beckley reports (https://bit.ly/2hTJqSY ) that Justice cited Antolini’s media experience in selecting him as his top spokesman.

Antolini worked at West Virginia and Maryland media outlets for 35 years, including eight years as executive editor and general manager for Beckley Newspapers. He became communications director for the state Agriculture Department in 2013.

Antolini is a 1982 graduate of the Perley Isaac Reed School of Journalism at West Virginia University. He says technology has changed the way government communicates with the public and that he will work to deliver information through both traditional and new media platforms.
