Timothy P. Knight, former CEO of Wrapports, LLC., the company that owns the Chicago Sun-Times, has been named president of Northeast Ohio Media Group.

The Ohio company, launched in August 2013, operates cleveland.com and the Sun News, and also is responsible for all multimedia ad sales and marketing for The Plain Dealer, according to a cleveland.com story posted Monday.

Knight is not expected to be replaced at the Sun-Times, according to the company.

Jim Kirk will remain publisher and editor-in-chief at the Sun-Times, with Paul Pham retaining his position as general manager.

Knight, a former publisher of Newsday, came to the Sun-Times in December 2011 as part of the investment group headed by Michael Ferro Jr. that acquired the media company that included the Sun-Times.

Knight, who began his new job Monday, will retain a relationship with the Sun-Times’ parent company, working as a special advisor for potential acquisitions. But Knight will be relocating to the Cleveland area, with his wife, Stephanie, and their two sons.
