AJ Rosenbohm, The Advocate's vice president of production

AJ Rosenbohm, a Louisiana native and veteran newspaper production executive, has joined The Advocate as vice president of production.

Rosenbohm spent four decades at The Times-Picayune in various production positions and played a key role in restarting the newspaper’s print editions after the staff was forced from the city during Hurricane Katrina.

He was vice president/production director there when the newspaper decided to shut down its New Orleans printing plant and publish in Mobile, Alabama.

Recently, he has been the production director of the Tulsa World in Oklahoma.

At The Advocate, Rosenbohm will supervise one of the nation’s newest offset printing and packaging facilities, which prints all editions of The Advocate, as well as many other publications.

“AJ has the vision we need to keep The Advocate strong in a challenging time for the newspaper industry,” said Dan Shea, publisher of The Advocate. “We are very happy AJ has decided to come home. With his extensive experience, his love of newspapers, and his great touch with people, he is the right person at the right time."

Rosenbohm is a graduate of the University of New Orleans and lives in Jefferson Parish.
