Darren Murphy, publisher and general manager of the Peterborough Examiner and publisher of the Lindsay Post, is calling it quits.
A brief online story says Murphy is leaving at the end of April to take a non-newspaper job that will "keep him and his family in Peterborough where he was raised."
The youngest publisher ever at the Examiner - and Post - was no doubt aging prematurely with Sun Media staff cuts and conglomerate politics.
Murphy started his newspaper career in media sales at the Examiner, then owned by Osprey Media. Later, he moved to Toronto as national account manager with Canwest Media Works, returning to the Examiner in 2003 as advertising director.
In 2005, Osprey named him publisher and general manager at the Northumberland group of newspapers. Two years later, it was back to Peterborough as a dual Examiner/Post publisher.
It seems all roads for Murphy lead back to Peterborough, but as of May 1, his presence there won't involve Sun Media.
The search is on for a new dual Peterbrough/Lindsay publisher.
