Idaho Falls newspaper names new publisher
Andy Pennington has been named the new publisher of the Idaho Falls Post Register.
The eastern Idaho newspaper reports that Adams Publishing Group announced the new hire on Tuesday.
Pennington was the publisher of the Idaho State Journal in Pocatello since 2012. For the past two years, he’s overseen the Rexburg Standard Journal and the Teton Valley News.
Pennington replaces Roger Plothow, who has been the newspaper’s publisher since 2002 after former publisher Jerry Brady announced he would run for governor.
Plothow has since been named president of Adams Publishing Group’s Signature Events, a new division focused on planning policy-based events throughout Idaho and other western states.
Family-owned Adams Publishing Group bought the Post Register in 2015 and later purchased multiple Idaho newspapers, including the Idaho State Journal, earlier this year.
