New Sud pub

Bruce Cowan, the Sudbury Star's new publisher, will temporarily double as publisher of the Timmins Daily Press, says a Star story.

Cowan, 49, Daily Press publisher for six years, replaces David Kilgour, who quit Sun Media to join Metroland's Guelph Mercury.

The Star story says except for a brief stint at the Welland Tribune, Cowan's newspaper years have all been in Northern Ontario.

Other stops for the Ryerson grad, who hails from Niagara Falls, were the Sault Star and the North Bay Nugget.

"It is a great opportunity," Cowan says of the Sudbury Star.

The Star story says for the time being, the father of two "will be commuting back and forth to Timmins to help oversee the operation of the Daily Press."

Sound familiar?

  1. Sudbury also lost one of its veteran reporters, Denis St. Pierre.
    St. Pierre has packed to join his wife in Toronto.
    He's left the print media and is taking a role in the communication department of the United Steelworkers of America.
    Sudbury will miss him!.
