BLUEFIELD, WV (AP) — A West Virginia native is returning home to become publisher of the Bluefield Daily Telegraph.

The newspaper reported Tuesday that Randy Mooney will take over for Darryl Hudson, who left in June for a position with the Rockford Register Star in Illinois.

Mooney was publisher of the Muskogee Phoenix in Oklahoma. The Muskogee and Bluefield newspapers are owned by Community Newspaper Holdings Inc.

A graduate of West Virginia University, Mooney worked at newspapers in Charleston before leaving the state in 1989 to become a marketing director for the Press & Sun-Bulletin in Binghamton, N.Y.

Mooney held executive positions with newspapers in Tarentum, Pa., Salisbury, Md., and Savannah, Ga., before joining CNHI as a vice president for sales and marketing in January 2009. He became publisher in Muskogee in 2010.
