DeRienzo Joins Hearst


    Matt DeRienzo has joined Hearst Connecticut Media Group in a new position over-seeing all editors of Hearst’s Connecticut print and web properties.

    DeRienzo is essentially replacing Barbara Roessner, who retired as a top editor at Hearst Connecticut a few months ago, but he is also taking on new responsibilities Roessner never carried; specifically those involving Hearst’s websites.

    The staff was informed of the decision in a series of conference calls, emails and meetings at midday Monday.
