Kathy Malm named regional general manager of Kansas papers
Kathy Malm, a longtime newspaper advertising salesperson, one-time chamber executive and central Kansas rancher, has been named regional general manager for GateHouse Media newspapers in Hutchinson, Salina and Hays, Kan.
Senior group publisher Stephen Wade made the announcement.
Malm began her career in newspapers with The Salina Journal in 1999. She worked there until she was named executive director for the Lindsborg Chamber of Commerce in 2001. She returned to The Journal in 2006 as a marketing consultant and subsequently held roles there as digital sales manager, sales team leader and advertising sales manager.
Gatehouse promoted Malm to advertising director at The Topeka Capital-Journal about nine months ago, where she worked directly with Wade.
"I'm excited for the opportunity to be able to work with all three communities," Malm said. "Being from the area and having the opportunity to have been in all those communities, I know how important the local newspaper is to the community. I've been able to travel around to see the other papers and I'm excited to share things we can do together. It's important to have our properties act as a team.
