Executive Vice President Mark Frisby will take over as publisher of the tabloid, Tierney said. Tierney will remain President and CEO of the Daily News. “This shows we’re going to actually step on the gas and invest more in the Daily News,” Tierney said. Brian Tierney — the CEO of the company that owns the Philadelphia Daily News and the Philadelphia Inquirer — announced today that he is appointing a new publisher for the Daily News. Frisby came to the company last fall after serving as publisher of the Courier-Post in Cherry Hill, N.J. He will continue to supervise production, labor and purchasing.
