 WILLSE NAMED DIRECTOR OF NEW MEDIA AT ADVANCE PUBLICATIONS
 NEWARK, N.J., March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- James P. Willse has been named to the newly created position of director of new media for the newspaper group of Advance Publications Inc. The announcement was made Tuesday by Donald E. Newhouse, president of the newspaper group, to whom he will report.
 Willse, 49, is a former publisher and editor of the New York Daily News and is generally credited with saving the newspaper following the bankruptcy brought on by the death of former owner Robert Maxwell. As an editor, he was responsible for an abundance of product improvements at The News and earlier at the San Francisco Examiner.
 "The explosion of technology opens uncharted territory for newspapers," said Newhouse. "We are delighted to have as our guide an accomplished journalist who can blend a familiarity with editorial values with an interest in the applications of emerging communications technologies.
 "Jim Willse is well-suited to take the lead in examining how our newspapers can become providers of news, information and services through a variety of new media outlets," Newhouse said.
 "These are the most exciting of times for editors and publishers whether they work with newspapers, broadcast, books or magazines," said Willse. "There will be literally hundreds of new ways to reach our audiences with our core products -- news and information that's smart, engaging, complete and interpretive. I'm very pleased to be joining a company with the resources and commitment to ride this new wave."
 Willse's appointment is effective April 1.
