Jim Warren, a former managing editor of the Chicago Tribune, was named publisher of the Reader today, in an announcement by Richard Gilbert, interim head of the board now running the chain of six Creative Loafing weeklies.

“He’s all the things you look for,” says Gilbert. “He has integrity, courage, enterprise, intelligence.” He says the appointment sends a message, both within the Reader and to the city, that “this newspaper continues to be very serious about its journalism and its content.”
