Jesse Lindsey will be the publisher of The Lebanon Democrat, Hartsville Vidette and Mount Juliet News, beginning Sept. 23.
Lindsey is currently the publisher of the Rogersville Review in Hawkins County. He started his newspaper career as an advertising salesperson in Sweetwater and has spent the last 11 years as a publisher, first at the Selma (Ala.) Times-Journal and then Suffolk (Va.) News Herald before moving to Rogersville.
Lindsey’s career has focused on building strong relationships with communities and developing full marketing products for businesses.
“I’m eager to work with our readers and the business people in Lebanon and Wilson County,” Lindsey said. “My family and I are excited about discovering everything the area has to offer, and I personally look forward to helping build a stronger community.”
He and his wife, Melanie, along with their five children, ages 2-14, will relocate to Wilson County in the next few months.
Lindsey replaces Joe Adams, who is moving to a sister organization as director of consumer sales.
