Zebora to oversee Connecticut business coverage for Hearst

January 5, 2009

Greenwich Time managing editor Jim Zebora has been named to a new position overseeing regional business coverage for the Hearst Connecticut Newspaper Group, according to a story in Monday’s paper.

The story states, “Zebora said the decision to leave Greenwich Time was difficult, but he could not pass up the opportunity to direct business coverage for Hearst’s four daily newspapers and seven community weeklies throughout Fairfield County. The company also owns the Connecticut Post and the Danbury News-Times.

“‘The opportunity to enhance business coverage for not only Greenwich, but Stamford, Bridgeport, Danbury and throughout the county is a challenge I’m eager to assume,’ Zebora said.

“Zebora, 55, served as business editor at The Advocate/Greenwich Time from 1999 to 2007. Prior to joining The Advocate, he spent 19 years at the Record-Journal in his native Meriden, where he worked his way up to business editor.

“‘Jim Zebora was the obvious choice to lead the expansion of our business coverage in Fairfield County,’ Dunster said, praising him for his tenure as managing editor of Greenwich Time. ‘Having served as editor for the award-winning business section of The Advocate and Greenwich Time for eight years, Jim has a great sense of the economy of Fairfield County and what makes it tick.'”
