John Weiss is stepping down as publisher of the Colorado Springs Independent. He announced today that COO/Associate Publisher Carrie Simison will take over as publisher next month:
Twenty-two years after launching the Indy, it is time (or perhaps past time) for me to let our talented, sophisticated and dedicated team take our growing operations to the next levels.
Accordingly, on Sept. 17, I will be “promoted” to chair of the Colorado Publishing House, which is the name of the company that owns the Independent and the Colorado Springs Business Journal. I will remain active with all our seven newspapers and civic initiatives, but day-to-day as well as month-to-month leadership will be turned over to two dynamic women who are ready, able and ever so willing to lead our organization.
