ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) — Aberdeen News Co. Publisher Cory Bollinger has been named regional publisher of a group of Indiana newspapers owned by the parent company of the American News and the Farm Forum.

Bollinger’s last day as publisher in South Dakota is June 23.

The Indiana papers are owned by Schurz Communications Inc. of Mishawaka, Indiana. The five papers are the South Bend Tribune, Bloomington Herald-Times, Bedford Times-Mail, Martinsville Reporter-Times and Mooresville-Decatur Times.

In addition to his publishing duties in Indiana, Bollinger will retain his title of vice president of publishing for Schurz. That means he’ll continue to have direct responsibilities for all of the company’s papers, including the American News and Farm Forum.
