Jeanie Johnson is now publisher of News Media Corp.’s Register-Pajaronian in Watsonville, the newspaper reports.

She had been general manager of the company’s South Valley Newspapers in the King City area. Johnson’s career has covered classified advertising, advertising sales and general management at companies including the Monterey County Herald, Sacramento News & Review, the Register-Pajaronian and CNPA’s California Newspaper Network.

Johnson succeeds John Bartlett, who has left the company.

“I’m sad to see John Bartlett go as he did a lot for the R-P and the community,” Johnson said. “I have some big shoes to fill, but I’m up for the challenge and really excited to be reconnecting with the Watsonville community.”
