Tuesday Wyatt Emmerich, the owner of Emmerich Newspapers, which includes the Press Register, named Jesse Wright as the newspaper’s new publisher. Matt Killebrew, the publisher for the past three years, announced last week that he would be leaving the Press Register and taking the position of director of public relations at Coahoma Community College.
“It is flattering to even be considered for the position of publisher, and to be picked is an honor,” said Wright. “Matt leaves a legacy of strengthening local news coverage, and the newspaper as a whole, and I will do my best to continue that. I hope readers and the public will benefit from my service as publisher.”
