American Media tapped Tracie Altman, 36, as publisher of the Enquirer
after an extensive search by President-CEO David Pecker. Ms. Altman, formerly ad director of the titles, spent the last six years with American Media. Ultimately, she will have responsibility only for the Enquirer
, but will oversee the Star
until a publisher is found. Tony Hoyt, former publisher of the two tabloids, left after Mr. Pecker acquired the company.
