Josh Bergeron to be editor of Kentucky paper

Going to Kentucky

SALISBURY — Josh Bergeron, associate editor of the Salisbury Post, has been named managing editor of The State Journal, a sister paper in Frankfort, Kentucky. 

His last day with the Post will be Oct. 27.

Bergeron, 25, will lead the news operation at the only daily newspaper based in Kentucky’s capital city. It was purchased by a Boone Newspapers affiliate in 2015. He also will lead the company’s “FRANK.”magazine and related digital products.

Bergeron has worked at the Salisbury Post since August 2014, covering county government, politics and environmental issues. He was promoted to associate editor earlier this year.

Bergeron previously worked as a reporter at the Selma (Alabama) Times-Journal and the Natchez (Mississippi) Democrat. He holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Louisiana State University and has received 12 journalism awards in three different states.

Bergeron succeeds David Brock, who resigned last month.

The Salisbury Post was purchased by a Boone Newspapers affiliate in 2014.
