Tennessean president to step down
Laura Hollingsworth, president of The Tennessean and the USA TODAY NETWORK - Tennessee, is leaving the company, the longtime media executive announced on Monday in a newsroom address to all Tennessean employees.
A 29-year veteran of the Gannett Co., parent of The Tennessean and USA TODAY, Hollingsworth oversees business operations of Gannett organizations throughout the state. Her final day is Feb. 2.
"I am very grateful for my Gannett career which has taken me so many places and given me and my family so many things," said Hollingsworth, who will continue to live in Nashville. "I simply feel this is the right time for me to explore what else I might do, where else I might have impact in new ways."
