The Hastings Tribune has a new publisher to replace the newspaper's longtime leader, Don Seaton.
Seaton announced his retirement last week, saying that 45-year-old Darran Fowler would take over the job.
Fowler has been associate publisher since July after serving as managing editor since 2001. He joined the newspaper in 1995.
Fowler's been replaced by 62-year-old Stephen Hermann, who returned to Nebraska after a stint as director of student publications at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, La.
Hermann's professional experience includes time at the Lincoln Journal-Star and Omaha World-Herald.
The 69-year-old Seaton had been publisher since 1974, taking over from his father, Fred.
The Seaton family has owned the Tribune since 1937.
