I don’t believe I’ve ever met Randy List, a Yankton native, but I just came across this story today about how he is now the publisher of the Daily Sentinel in Le Mars.
Where did he get his start?
The Yankton Press & Dakotan.
Here is what the Daily Sentinel had to say:
Randy List, Greencastle, Ind., is the new publisher and part owner of the Le Mars Daily Sentinel as well as newspapers in Remsen, Kingsley, Cherokee, Anthon and Correctionville.
List, a native of Yankton, S.D., began his work as Daily Sentinel publisher Monday.
“I’m truly excited for this opportunity to move back closer to my South Dakota family and to this great community,” List said. “I look forward to getting to know people and becoming part of the community.”
List will continue his work as a regional vice president for Rust Communications, of Cape Girardeau, Mo., and his responsibilities include overseeing other newspapers in Iowa, one in Nebraska and one in Idaho.
List will remain publisher and part owner of the three Indiana newspapers — the Greencastle Banner Graphic, Greene County Daily World and the Brazil Times.
His regional vice president responsibilities have previously included overseeing newspapers in northwest Iowa.
The publications included the Le Mars Daily Sentinel as well as newspapers in Remsen, Kingsley, Cherokee, Anthon and Correctionville.
List served as both a regional vice president for Rust Communications and interim publisher following the resignation in July of Daily Sentinel publisher Tom Stangl.
Stangl and his wife, Diane, accepted newspaper positions in Amery, Wis.
List started his career for his hometown paper in Yankton, S. D., in 1974 as a proofreader in the advertising department.
