Claybaugh will succeed longtime Gannett executive Sherman Bodner, who is retiring at the end of the month. Bodner has been with Gannett for nearly 40 years.

"Thomas is an outstanding leader and has strong sales experience, mostly in upstate New York, which gives him a deep understanding of the region," said Dickey. "We look forward to Thomas taking this next step in his career and using his unique skills to achieve great things in Central New York."
A U.S. Navy veteran, Claybaugh was also group publisher for the Newspaper Network of Central Ohio. He's held various positions with then-Gannett owned Huntington (WV) Herald Dispatch, The Saratogian in Saratoga, NY, and the Poughkeepsie (NY) Journal.
