Par Ridder named publisher of Star Tribune

Posted at 11:32 AM on March 5, 2007 by Bill Wareham

Par Ridder has been named publisher and chief executive of the Star Tribune. Ridder has spent the last three years as publisher of the rival across the river, the St. Paul Pioneer Press, a paper owned by his family's Knight Ridder chain until its sale last year.

Ridder takes on his new responsibilities immediately.

On a related note, Avista Capital Partners closed on its purchase of the Star Tribune from McClatchy today.
