Albany--  From Assistant City Manager to Albany newspaper owner.  A familiar face takes a more active role in print journalism.  

Former Albany Assistant City Manager Kevin Hogencamp is now the new owner and publisher of the Albany Journal. The purchase was made final Tuesday.

For the past two years, Hogencamp has served as a contributing writer for the Journal. He'll continue doing that but wants the paper to have even more local stories with much input coming from citizens.

"We are putting the word out that we want people to write columns for us, tell us what's on their mind, tell us what's going on in their neighborhood, tell us what they think about the state of leadership in our community," said Hogencamp.

Hogencamp's wife Suzanne will run the day to day operations. They take over ownership of the weekly paper from Sandy Farkas. The Albany Journal has been in print since 1939.
