Heather McKernan

Heather McKernan, publisher of the Monadnock Ledger-Transcript of Peterborough, has been named the first female publisher of the Ledger-Transcript’s sister newspaper, the Concord Monitor. McKernan replaces David Sangiorgio, who is becoming vice president at NNExt Media, a subsidiary of Newspapers of New England, parent company of the Monitor and the Ledger-Transcript. McKernan is taking on her new role in early May. She will continue to be publisher of the Ledger-Transcript. In 1989, McKernan was appointed human resources manager at the Monitor and later became controller before being named publisher of the Ledger-Transcript in 1995.

The Transitions were written, at least in part, from published reports by Bulletin correspondents Joseph Dussault and Peyton Luxford, undergraduate students at Northeastern University.
