New publisher named for SF Media Co.

Longtime advertising executive Jay Curran has been named the new publisher of San Francisco Media Company, which produces the San Francisco Examiner and SF Weekly.

Curran, who previously worked as chief revenue officer and senior director of major and national advertising for S.F. Media Co., replaces outgoing publisher Glenn Zuehls, who has been promoted to a management role in a new division of Oahu Publications Inc., the parent company of S.F. Media Co. Curran assumes his new position Monday.

Prior to his time at S.F. Media Co., Curran spent 11 years in management with Sears, Roebuck & Company in San Diego and nearly six years with the Los Angeles Newspaper Group. He also worked as the advertising director of the Antelope Valley Press for 12 years.

“I look forward to continuing the great work Glenn Zuehls has done here with the San Francisco Media Company,” Curran said. “His forward thinking and creativity have driven our newspapers to be the leader for local news in San Francisco. I am excited to work with our team to continue to provide our community with top quality local news and advertising.”

After serving as S.F. Media Company’s publisher for more than three years, Zuehls has been named executive director of Digital Billboard Network, a new division of Oahu Publications Inc., which is a subsidiary of Black Press Group Ltd. Before his role as publisher of S.F. Media Co., Zuehls was the senior vice president of advertising for Oahu Publications Inc.

“It’s been a great three years working as publisher of the San Francisco Examiner and SF Weekly,” Zuehls said. “I’m looking forward to my new role with the Digital Billboard Network, and I feel confident that I am leaving S.F. Media Co. in the most capable of hands with Jay Curran.”
