A Black farewell

The Edmonton Sun steps up to the plate to bid farewell to David Black, 58, a Day Oner who retires today as publisher and CEO.

Today's story reads, in part:

The Edmonton Sun is bidding farewell to a good friend.

Publisher and CEO David Black is retiring after nearly four decades in the newspaper industry.

"After 37 years, it is time to sit back and let someone else captain the ship," said Black, who began his career as a junior ad salesman at the Toronto Sun in 1971.

Meanwhile, a Calgary Sun story today fails to mention Black's exit in announcing the appointment of Gord Norrie to the new executive role of Senior Group Publisher for Calgary and Edmonton.

The story says Norrie will be publisher and CEO of the Edmonton Sun, the Calgary Sun and the 24 hours dailies in both cities.

It also says Norrie has served as publisher of both papers in the past.

A heavy workload, nonetheless.
