Schurz Communications announced that J.B. Ozuna has been promoted to vice president of digital media.

The appoint­ment took effect Sept. 1.

Ozuna has succeeded as the director of sales and revenue development for the past seven years.

He and his team have helped Schurz Communications launch a variety of digital revenue initiatives across all companies and have recently branched out into direct digital sales in two markets.

Schurz’ Indiana news­papers include The Times-Mail (Bedford), The Herald-Times (Bloom­ington), The Reporter Times (Martinsville) and the South Bend Tribune.

Prior to joining Schurz in 2007, Ozuna was the digital sales manager for KMGH-TV in Denver. He moved to Denver in 2003 after previous sales positions with KENS-TV and WOAI-TV in San Antonio. Before working on the station side, Ozuna was a talent recruitment manager for The Broadcast Image Group.

“I am proud of what we have achieved on the digital revenue side at (Schurz Communications) these past few years,” Ozuna said.
