New Barrie pub

The Barrie Examiner has a new publisher/general manager.

An Examiner story says David Zilstra, a 45-year-old Whitby native with 20 years of newspaper experience, introduced himself to staff on Monday.

"I'm one of those soldiers you can always count on," says Zilstra. "I have a commitment to the papers I manage, and I bring 20 years of experience here with me."

The paper says Zilstra got his media start in 1989 as a Napanee Guide sales rep and spent 16 years there, becoming advertising manager in 1993 and general manager in 1998. In 2005, he began managing four Algonquin Group papers - the Haliburton County Echo, Minden Times, Bancroft This Week and Barry's Bay This Week.
