Jennifer Logue has been named managing editor of the Ponte Vedra Recorder and its associated publications, publisher Susan Griffin has announced.
Logue is a Ponte Vedra resident with roots in New England and has extensive experience in newspapers, public broadcasting and public relations. She fills the position left vacant by the departure of Kelly H. McDermott.
“We are so happy to have someone of Jennifer’s talents join our staff,” Griffin said. “Her experience will be invaluable to us as we continue to build and expand our publications.”
Logue has more than two decades of communications experience that includes writing for a daily newspaper, editing a quarterly journal and managing public relations for a number of organizations. She has written for a number of publications, including The Patriot Ledger newspaper in Quincy, Mass., and worked for 10 years at public broadcasting leader WGBH Boston. She holds a degree in print journalism from American University in Washington, DC, where she received the Outstanding Print Journalism Student Award.
“We are so excited to have Jennifer join our great staff in Ponte Vedra,” said Larry Miller, chief executive officer of the Recorder’s parent company, OPC News, LLC, based in South Carolina. OPC is owned by brothers Kyle, Jack and Graham Osteen of Sumter, S.C.
“The Recorder is Ponte Vedra’s hometown newspaper and it carries a very strong brand, and we expect it to continue growing rapidly in the coming months and years,” Miller said. “Jennifer will be instrumental in that success.”
