COLUMBUS, Neb. (AP) - A former Fremont Tribune publisher has been hired to lead the Columbus Telegram.

Vincent Laboy is scheduled to take over next week as publisher and advertising director of the daily newspaper and its sister nondaily papers, the David City Banner-Press and Schuyler Sun. He’ll be replacing John DiMambro, who left in September after two years as the publisher in Columbus.

The Columbus Telegram reports (https://bit.ly/2g25t5z ) that Laboy served as advertising director for the Fremont Tribune for seven years before being promoted to publisher and advertising director for the Tribune and Plattsmouth Journal in 2012. The newspapers are all owned by Lee Enterprises, which is based in Davenport, Iowa.

Laboy led the Montrose Daily Press in Colorado as publisher and advertising director for two years before accepting the position in Columbus.
