COOS BAY, OR- The World newspaper of Coos Bay has named a former Associated Press newsman as top editor.
Larry Campbell would become executive editor Tuesday.
Publisher Jeff Precourt said Campbell's work in Alaska stood out because topics such as the environment and native populations are similar to those on Oregon's coast.
Campbell graduated from the University of Oregon and began his journalism career in 1982 with the Anchorage Daily News. He was part of a team that won a Pulitzer Prize for Public Service for a 10-week series on alcoholism and addiction in Alaska Native communities.
From 2001-2009, Campbell served as assistant bureau chief and Alaska bureau chief for the AP. He's held editor positions at The Peninsula Clarion and First Alaskans Magazine.
