McClatchy Co. named board member Craig Forman as president and CEO, the company said Jan. 25.
Forman, who joined McClatchy as a board member in 2013, previously held executive posts for Yahoo! Inc., Time Warner Inc., Infoseek and Dow Jones. He also served Earthlink Holdings Corp. as chief product officer and president of its consumer access and audience business. He was also a reporter and bureau chief for The Wall Street Journal.
Forman will replace Patrick Talamantes, who is stepping down after being appointed to the post in 2012. McClatchy supposedly extended Talamantes' term to May 2018. Both Forman and Talamantes were re-elected as directors for one-year terms during the annual meeting of McClatchy shareholders in May 2016.
