K.C. Star names Zieman publisher

Mark Zieman, editor of The Kansas City Star since mid-1997, has been named publisher of the newspaper.
He succeeds Mac Tully, who resigned in February to join Denver-based MediaNews Group.
The McClatchy Co., The Star’s owner since early 2006, appointed Zieman, who served as in-
terim publisher since Tully’s departure. Zieman said he would hire an editor to replace him as soon as possible.
Zieman, 47, joined The Star in 1986 after working in the Houston bureau of The Wall Street Journal for two years.
In 1989 he became editor of The Star’s projects desk, where he oversaw an examination of the U.S. Department of Agriculture that won a Pulitzer Prize in the spring of 1992.
He became managing editor for news in 1992 and was promoted to editor of the newspaper five years later.
