Mike Jung named new president in Memphis and Jackson, Tenn.


Michael Jung, president of The News-Press Media Group in Fort Myers, Fla., has been named president of The Commercial Appeal (Memphis) and The Jackson Sun.

Jung, 59, a more than 30-year industry veteran, has been the interim president at The Commercial Appeal for two months. He succeeds George Cogswell, who retired in January after five years as CA president.

"When I arrived in Memphis in late March for the first time, I was on a temporary assignment as another career adventure," Jung said. "I fell in love with The Commercial Appeal, the people who work there and Memphis. It's now part of my journey to make a difference in this organization."
