Summit Daily names new publisher

Matt Sandberg has been named publisher of the Summit Daily News. Sandberg, 35, has been director of sales for the Summit and Vail Daily newspapers since early 2009. Previously he was advertising director for the Summit Daily News and has worked at the newspaper since 2003.

He replaces Jim Morgan, who for the past year has been both publisher of the Summit Daily and general manager of Colorado Mountain News Media, the newspaper’s parent company. Morgan, who plans to relocate to Eagle County, will focus solely on his general manager duties.

“Matt is well prepared to lead the Summit Daily, and I have every confidence in him,” said Morgan. “He brings good judgment and experience to the job and will be an excellent partner with editor Alex Miller and advertising director Maggie Butler.”

The change is effective March 19.

Sandberg, a graduate of Summit High School, attended the University of Nebraska and Westwood College. Prior to joining the Summit Daily he was a manager and webmaster for AON Innovative solutions, a partner with Sears Corporate.

“I am honored and excited to be given the fantastic opportunity to lead the Summit Daily News,” Sandberg said. “I have been incredibly fortunate to live and work in Summit County for so long, I can’t imagine a better place to be than right here serving the Summit County community.”

Sandberg is also a member of the Frisco Chamber of Commerce board of directors, a Breckenridge Mountain Rotary member and has been a member of the newspaper’s editorial board since 2007.

Sandberg and his wife, Shannon, have two children, Madison and Sarah, and are residents of Dillon.
