KPC Media Group announces the addition of Wes Townsley as its director of audience develop­ment.

Towns­ley comes to KPC with a wealth of newspaper experience, most recently from Paxton Media Group in Marion, Indiana, where he served as regional circulation director.

Prior to that he was circulation director at Winfield Publishing Co. in Winfield, Kansas.

“We are so pleased to have Wes on board as our 100 year-old, locally-owned company continues to see steady growth at a time when others are cutting back,” said Terry Ward, chief operating officer at KPC Media Group.

Finding the most capable professionals to fill new positions is paramount, Ward said.

“As we evolve, we need those critical thinkers to help us identify the best opportunities and then capitalize on them,” he said.
