America Press Inc. the Jesuit-sponsored magazine and web site, today announced the appointment of Father John P. Schlegel, S.J. as publisher and president. Father Schlegel, who recently completed 11 years as president of Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska, will assume his office in November. The joining of the publisher’s role with that of the president of America Press is an early outcome of the press’s strategic planning process which will conclude in late February. As president, Father Schlegel succeeds Father Drew Christiansen, S.J., who will remain America’s editor in chief. The publisher’s position has been open since the resignation of Ms. Jan Attridge, the press’s first publisher, in April.
