The Salt Lake Tribune announced this week it has hired a longtime newspaper executive as its new chief revenue officer.
Chris Stegman was previously director of revenue at the Houston Chronicle and worked for nearly a decade before that as an advertising executive for the newspaper chain Gannett, including as retail sales leader for The Arizona Republic and as vice president of sales for several regions of USA Today.
Stegman is now responsible for The Tribune’s subscription, advertising and marketing efforts online and in print. Starting next year, The Tribune will move from seven-day print delivery to a robust weekly print edition mailed each weekend to go with its enhanced digital presence.
“Chris is uniquely qualified to lead our business efforts during this historic transition and to position The Tribune for long-term financial stability,” said Paul Huntsman, chairman of The Tribune’s board of directors.
“I’m excited to represent a 150-year-old leading voice in the state,” Stegman said in a news release. “I’m even more excited with The Tribune’s new model, which will have a heavy focus on connecting great content in a digital format, while still providing an in-depth, weekly printed product.”
