TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A former intern at the Topeka Capital-Journal has returned to the city to become publisher of the newspaper.

Gatehouse Media announced the appointment of Stephen Wade on Friday.

As a young journalism student at the University of Kansas, Wade got journalism experience as an intern at The Capital-Journal.

Wade was most recently general manager and president of The Augusta Chronicle in Georgia. He previously worked as a picture editor in Los Angeles, and was publisher in Pittsburg, Kansas, Independence, Missouri, and Florence, South Carolina.

Gatehouse regional vice president Grady Singletary says Wade also will be Kansas senior group publisher for the media company, which bought The Capital-Journal in October 2017. In that capacity, Wade will work with Gatehouse papers throughout Kansas.
