Bos­ton Her­ald Ed­i­tor in Chief Joe Sci­acca has been named to over­see the ed­i­to­rial op­er­a­tions of seven daily news­pa­pers in Dig­i­tal First Me­dia’s North­east Clus­ter, the me­dia com­pany an­nounced Tues­day.

As Re­gional Ed­i­tor in Chief, Sci­acca will over­see DFM’s pa­pers in Mas­sachu- setts and New York. Those pa­pers in­clude the Bos­ton Her­ald; The Low­ell Sun; Sentinel & En­ter­prise of Fitch­burg; the Daily Free­man in Kingston; The Record of Troy; The Sarato­gian of Saratoga Springs; and the Oneida Daily Dis­patch.

“Joe has the deep jour­nal­ism ex­pe­ri­ence and in­no­va­tive ap­proach needed to lead the ed­i­to­rial op­er­a­tions of our North­east prop­er­ties,” said Re­gional Pub­lisher Kevin Cor­rado. “The au­di­ence reach of our clus­ter and the com­bined im­pact of our jour­nal­ism is a pow­er­ful com­bi­na­tion. Joe’s ap­point­ment to this new po­si­tion will en­sure that we make the most of our syn­er­gies and best prac­tices while pre­serv­ing the in­di­vid­ual iden­ti­ties of each of our ex­cel­lent pub­li­ca­tions.”

Sci­acca joined the Her­ald in 1983 and be­came Ed­i­tor in Chief in 2010. He­has four decades of daily news­pa­per ex­pe­ri­ence as a re­porter, po­lit­i­cal colum­nist and ed­i­tor, start­ing out as a cor­re­spon­dent for the Low­ell Sun and re­porter for the Ea­gle-Tri­bune of Lawrence, Mass., be­fore mov­ing to the Her­ald

Hewas awarded the Fitzwa­ter Medal­lion for Lead­er­ship in Pub­lic Com­mu­ni­ca­tion awarded by Franklin Pierce Univer­sity, which se­lected him as vis­it­ing fel­low this year. Un­der his lead­er­ship, the Her­ald has been rec­og­nized na­tion­ally for mul­ti­me­dia in­no­va­tion.

“I’m ex­cited by the op- por­tu­nity to build upon the great work done by the ex­cep­tional ed­i­to­rial staffs at these news­pa­pers – all of which are rooted in the com­mu­ni­ties they serve. There is an in­cred­i­ble pas­sion and spirit we share as jour­nal­ists across our re­gion,” Sci­acca said. “Work­ing closely with Kevin and the rest of DFM’s tal­ented North­east Clus­ter team, I know we’ll have even more suc­cess in serv­ing our print and dig­i­tal read­ers in the years to come.”
