Alison Draper, who was publisher of the Dallas Observer between 2002 and 2006, has been named the new vice president and chief sales officer of Creative Loafing, Inc. She will report to CL CEO Marty Petty, and will be based in the company's Chicago office. "We're all aware of the decline in the influence of daily newspapers and in their circulation and advertising sales," Draper says in a release. "I'm convinced that Creative Loafing's newspapers and websites can attract the readers and serve the advertisers who find daily newspapers irrelevant."
