The Record (Troy, NY) - - LOCAL NEWS -

TROY, N.Y. » Kevin Cor­rado, the for­mer pub­lisher of the New Haven Reg­is­ter, has been named pub­lisher of The Record. Cor­rado will over­see op­er­a­tions at the Record and the other New York prop­er­ties of Dig­i­tal First Me­dia, which in­clude the Daily Free­man in Kingston, the Oneida Daily Dis­patch and The Sarato­gian in Saratoga Springs. His man­age­ment du­ties will also ex­tend to Dig­i­tal First Me­dia news prop­er­ties in Mas­sachusetts, in­clud­ing The Low­ell Sun and Fitch­burg’s Sen­tinel & En­ter­prise. Dig­i­tal First Me­dia re­cently de­cided to con­sol­i­date man­age­ment struc­ture in New York and Mas­sachusetts.

Cor­rado is a vet­eran in­dus­try ex­ec­u­tive, with most of his 32 years in jour­nal­ism.

“We have a huge re­spon­si­bil­ity for lo­cal jour­nal­ism, and that en­er­gizes me ev­ery sin­gle day,” he said.

Cor­rado has been in Con­necti­cut for the last three years as pub­lisher of the New Haven Reg­is­ter. He also led op­er­a­tions at The Reg­is­ter Cit­i­zen, The Mid­dle­town Press, Con­necti­cut Mag­a­zine and Dig­i­tal First Me­dia’s port­fo­lio of Con­necti­cut weekly news­pa­pers.

Be­fore his work in Con­necti­cut, he served as pub­lisher at New Eng­land News­pa­per Inc., which in­cluded The Berk­shire Ea­gle in Pitts­field, Mas­sachusetts; The Ben­ning­ton Ban­ner in Ben­ning­ton, Ver­mont; The Brat­tle­boro Re­former in Brat­tle­boro, Ver­mont; and The Manch­ester Jour­nal in Manch­ester, Ver­mont.

Cor­rado pre­vi­ously was pub­lisher for the Green Bay Press-Gazette, the Man­i­towoc Her­ald Times Re­porter and Bay Pub­li­ca­tions, owned by Gan­nett Co. Inc.

“My pas­sion for this busi­ness is never- end­ing, and I think it has a bright fu­ture,” Cor­rado said. “My No. 1 goal is to pro­tect the First Amend­ment and op­er­ate this busi­ness where we are pro­duc­ing con­tent that our read­ers want, get­ting our con­tent out — whether it’s in dig­i­tal or print form — and sell­ing ad­ver­tis­ing that gets re­sults for our ad­ver­tis­ers. I’m con­fi­dent that we will be suc­cess­ful.”

Cor­rado and his wife, An­gela, have two adult chil­dren who live in Wis­con­sin.
