MOUNT GILEAD — A newspaper veteran of 37 years has been named editor of The Morrow County Sentinel.
Anthony Conchel assumed his duties Monday. He replaces Zach Jones, who left to pursue other career opportunities.
“Anthony brings a wealth of newspaper experience to the Morrow County community. He has a track record of producing strong local news products and is a welcome addition to The Sentintel,” said Vicki Taylor, general manager of The Sentinel.
Conchel most recently was editor of The Delaware Gazette, a sister newspaper with Aim Media Midwest.
“I am looking forward to writing and editing stories for our readers,” Conchel said. “This is a great community and our readers deserve a strong editorial product both in print and online.”
Conchel is a graduate of West Virginia University with a degree in journalism. He began his career with The Coshocton Tribune in 1980 as a sports writer.
He has also edited daily newspapers in Marion, Bucyrus, Mansfield, Urbana and Washington Court House, Ohio, as well as Weirton, West Virginia.
“We have a strong news and sports reporting staff here in Mount Gilead. We will attempt to make it even better as we cover Morrow County,” Conchel said.
He resides in eastern Marion County with his wife, Rosina, and daughter, Amber.
