David Black, publisher of the Edmonton Sun has announced his retirement effective this Friday, says a memo from Gordon Norrie, publisher and CEO, Senior Group Publisher
"You should also be aware that I will (again) take over the role of publisher & CEO for both Calgary and Edmonton," Norrie says in the memo, sent to TSF by a tipster.
In January, it was Black who confirmed that Graham Dalziel, the Edmonton Sun's editor-in-chief, had resigned.
Dalziel, a Day Oner, was rumoured to have resigned over numerous jobs lost at the tabloid on Black Tuesday.
Black, 58, publisher of the Edmonton Sun since January of 2008, is also an EdSun Day Oner. He got his start in the Sun family in 1971 as a Toronto Sun ad sales rep.
Another Sun vet gone in his 50s, no doubt with still much more to give the newspaper he loved.
All the best, Dave.
