HARTMANN NAMED GENERAL MANAGER OF KNOXVILLE NEWS-SENTINEL

 CINCINNATI, Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Bruce R. Hartmann, assistant general manager of The Knoxville (Tenn.) News-Sentinel, has been promoted to general manager. He succeeds Robert J. Hively, who has resigned to become publisher of The Topeka Capital-Journal in his native Kansas.
 The appointment, effective today, was made by William R. Burleigh, executive vice president of The E.W. Scripps Company (NYSE: SSP). He said, "Bruce Hartmann is a fine talent who, at a youthful age, brings enthusiasm and fresh ideas about the future to the fast-changing world of newspapering."
 Hartmann, 36, joined The News-Sentinel -- and Scripps -- in 1990 as advertising director, a position he held until June 1993, when he was named assistant general manager.
 He held advertising management positions at the Lowell (Mass.) Sun from 1987 to 1990 and at the Nashua (N.H.) Telegraph from 1985-1987. For six years prior, he was with The Baltimore Sun, first as an advertising sales representative and later as sales manager for Sunday products.
 Hartmann joined the Baltimore newspaper upon graduation from the University of West Virginia in 1979, where he received a bachelor's degree in journalism with an emphasis on advertising. As a student, he completed advertising internships at The Pittsburgh Press and Baltimore Sun.
 While in Knoxville, Hartmann has helped implement the newspaper's alternative delivery system, which distributes advertising materials, product samples and 35 monthly magazines to 60,000 homes. He's also been instrumental in development of an audiotex service that offers more than 30 categories of information.
 Hartmann attributes his interest in journalism to his father, Robert H. Hartmann, publisher of The Evansville Press and a former Scripps newspaper executive.
 He is on the board of Knoxville's Better Business Bureau, City Ballet and Big Brothers & Sisters organization. He and his wife, Tami, have three children: Melissa, 10; Jacquelyn, 8; and Brian, 5.
 Hively, who is leaving Scripps after nearly 20 years, will oversee all operations of The Capital-Journal, a 66,000-circulation newspaper published by Stauffer Communications. He joined Scripps in 1975 as circulation director of The Cincinnati Post. He then served as circulation director of The Commercial Appeal in Memphis from 1976 to 1981, when he became publisher of the Southern California Publishing Company. In 1986 he moved to Knoxville to become president, general manager and chief executive officer of The Knoxville News-Sentinel.
 The News-Sentinel has Sunday circulation of 186,000 and daily circulation of 127,000. On Dec. 31, 1991, The News-Sentinel became Knoxville's only daily newspaper when joint operations with The Knoxville Journal ended and The Journal ceased daily publication.
 The E.W. Scripps Company publishes 20 daily newspapers, operates 10 television stations, is a major cable operator with more than 680,000 subscribers, and owns United Media, a leading licenser and syndicator of news features and comics.
