Las Vegas CityLife publisher Geoff Schumacher will relocate to Iowa to take over as publisher of the Ames Tribune newspaper group. Both CityLife and the Tribune are owned by Stephens Media LLC:
Schumacher was a reporter, editorial writer and city editor for the Las Vegas Sun for 10 years and editor of CityLife for three. He came to Stephens Media in 2000, where he founded the Las Vegas Mercury, which ceased publishing when the company acquired rival CityLife. Schumacher has written a weekly public affairs column for the Review-Journal for five years and has authored two Stephens Press books: Howard Hughes: Power, Paranoia & Palace Intrigue and Sun, Sin & Suburbia: An Essential History of Modern Las Vegas.
