Columbus (Neb.) Telegram publisher Bob Blackman announced his resignation Monday. Blackman, 61, has been at the paper for five years; he previously was the publisher of the Beatrice (Neb.) Daily Sun. Blackman said he will take some time to "decompress" before deciding what he will do next.
Blackman's replacement is expected to be announced tomorrow. Longview (Wash.) Daily News publisher Linda Lindus announced last week that she was leaving that paper; a replacement has not yet been announced.
