Scott Kinter was named regional circulation director for Lee Enter­prises, a managerial position in which he’ll oversee the circulation of six different Lee newspapers.

Based out of Munster, he will manage circulation for The Times of Northwest Indiana, as well as newspapers in Waterloo and Mason City in Iowa, in Carlisle in Pennsylvania, and in Glens Falls and Auburn in New York State.

The Lee Enterprises veteran had been director of operations at the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier for eight years. Prior to that, he had worked in the San Francisco region for the San Francisco Bay Area news group, as well as the Contra Costa Times, and also for the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Kinter said he aspired to fix delivery problems that cropped up after The Times took over northwest Indiana delivery for local publications such as the Post-Tribune and national ones such as USA Today.
