Sturgeon Bay native Laura Hollingsworth has been named president and publisher of The Tennessean of Nashville, Tenn., replacing Carol Hudler, who is moving to a corporate position within Gannett Co. Inc., the McLean, Va.-based owner of The Tennessean.

Hollingsworth comes to Nashville from Des Moines, where she was president and publisher of The Des Moines Register since 2007. She will also continue to serve as Gannett's U.S. Community Publishing group president of the Central Group, overseeing 25 markets in the central region.

Hudler, meanwhile, has been named special assistant to U.S. Community Publishing President Robert Dickey. Hudler will be based in Nashville.

"Laura has a deep commitment to community journalism and will expand our digital capabilities, as she has done in Des Moines. She is a proven leader who will continue to use her strengths to achieve great results," Dickey said. "And, we welcome Carol to her new role directly reporting to me, where she will help strengthen our brands and high-quality products for community-focused journalism."

Prior to being named president and publisher of The Tennessean, Laura Hollingsworth served as president and publisher of The Des Moines Register since 2007. She oversees 25 markets in the Central region and has been a regional group president since 2008. She joined Gannett in 1989.

Hollingsworth worked at newspapers in Wisconsin, Washington, Illinois and Michigan prior to joining The Des Moines Register in 2002 where she served as the vice president of advertising and as general manager.
