PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - In a story April 13 about The Providence Journal naming a new executive editor, The Associated Press reported erroneously on Alan Rosenberg’s most recent role. He has most recently been the managing editor, not the assistant managing editor for breaking news and features.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Providence Journal goes in-house for new executive editor

The Providence Journal has named a new executive editor

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The Providence Journal has named a new executive editor.

The newspaper reports (https://bit.ly/2pbmzWZ) that Alan Rosenberg, who currently serves as managing editor, will take over the post when David Butler, the current executive editor, retires in June.

The announcement was made on Thursday by the Journal’s president and publisher, Janet Hasson.

Rosenberg has worked for the Journal for nearly four decades in various roles. He’ll be replaced in the managing editor’s role by Michael McDermott, who was most recently the assistant managing editor for breaking news and features.

Rosenberg says he’s excited to take the post in a time when “accurate, verified reporting” is more important than ever.

Butler joined the newspaper in 2015 after retiring from the San Jose Mercury News.
