New leader joins regional newspapers
A new face has joined the local news team and she has hit the ground running.

Last month, Cathy Gerring took over the seat vacated by the former publisher of The Northern Neck News, The Northumberland Echo and The Westmoreland news when Bill Trimble, who also served as parent company Lakeway Publishing’s vice-president of its Virginia papers, retired.
Gerring, whose new role as general manager of the three publications, has already made a name for herself as a dedicated new member of the community.
In addition to joining the local Warsaw-Richmond County Rotary, Gerring donates her time to community events and has an open-door policy for any readers who have suggestions or ideas.
