Forum Communications announced this week the company has named Kevin Cederstrom as general manager of the Park Rapids Enterprise.
Cederstrom is the current editor of the Enterprise and will oversee the day to day operations as general manager. He will continue his role as managing editor.
Mary Brenk, who was publisher of both the Detroit Lakes Tribune and Park Rapids Enterprise, will concentrate her efforts as publisher of the Detroit Lakes Tribune with Cederstrom taking over the daily operations in Park Rapids.
He has been editor of the Enterprise since March of 2015 and the addition of general manager responsibilities will provide the daily leadership necessary for the Enterprise to move forward in providing the best newspaper possible for the Park Rapids area communities the newspaper serves.
"This is a great opportunity to concentrate our efforts at the Enterprise in continuing to provide our readers with a great newspaper," Cederstrom said. "Newspapers are part of a shifting media landscape and we’ll continue to strive for improving the Enterprise as we move forward with our digital and print editions, and at the same time keeping the tradition of the hometown newspaper for our readers."
As editor and general manager, Cederstrom recognizes the importance of the newspaper’s role in community leadership.
