U of M fellow, ex-Star Tribune publisher is new editor of Las Vegas newspaper

The family of billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson says the Las Vegas Review-Journal has a new editor.

Review-Journal publisher Craig A. Moon said in a statement Friday that J. Keith Moyer takes over immediately as editor-in-chief and senior vice president for content of Nevada's largest newspaper.

Moyer is a former publisher of the Star Tribune and former editor of newspapers including the Fresno Bee in California, the Democrat and Chronicle in Rochester, New York, and the Arkansas Gazette in Little Rock.

Since 2010, Moyer has been a fellow at the University of Minnesota School of Journalism and Mass Communication.

Moon arrived last week, replacing Jason Taylor, who works for Gatehouse Media LLC.

Gatehouse sold the newspaper to the Adelson family in December, but still has a management contract.
