Gannett regional president Terry Horne said Bivona also will oversee Gannett editorial operations in the Times Record News, Abilene Reporter-News and San Angelo Standard-Times.

Bivona had been president and publisher of the times Record News since 2010. His three-decade journalism industry has focused on circulation, operations, advertising and sales.
