BANGOR, Maine (AP) - Bangor International Airport's interim director has been hired to stay on the job permanently.
Tony Caruso was offered the post Monday and quickly accepted.
Caruso was named interim director following the departure of former director Rebecca Hupp, who left in January to take a similar position in Boise, Idaho.
Bangor's city manager told the Bangor Daily News (http://bit.ly/LYAFC9 ) that a national search drew 30 applicants and she interviewed three finalists before offering the post to Caruso.
Caruso has been at the airport for 16 years, the last 10 as assistant director.
