Mark Treinen, executive editor of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, will become the editor of The Capital Times.

An excerpt from the announcement reads:

“Treinen currently oversees newsroom operations at the Press-Gazette, which is part of the USA TODAY Network along with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Both newspapers are owned by Gannett Co., Inc.

Treinen also leads a government watchdog and investigations team across 10 Gannett newsrooms, working with the Milwaukee investigative team on joint projects.

He will become only the sixth editor in the history of the Cap Times, which was founded by William T. Evjue in 1917.

Treinen, 54, is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and started his career as a reporter at the Pocono Record in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. Prior to his position in Green Bay, he held the top editor roles in Wausau and in Wisconsin Rapids.

He has a long record of leading award-winning journalism, and this past year organized a reader advisory group in Green Bay to share ideas and feedback on local news coverage to improve his organization’s diversity, inclusion and equity efforts. Treinen also was selected to become part of Gannett’s team to recruit staff for over 100 properties nationwide.”
