New Peter/pub

The Peterborough Examiner and Lindsay Post have a new dual publisher and general manager.

Gordon Brewerton, publisher of Northumberland Today and in media for almost 30 years, makes the move in May, says an Examiner story.

He will be replacing Darren Murphy, who is retiring from the newspaper business.

Brewerton's media experience includes a stint as a sports reporter and graphic artist, good news for journalists who appreciate hands-on newsroom experience in a publisher.

The Examiner story says he has been group publisher with Sun Media's Northumberland Publishers group since the fall of 2008.


  1. Darren Murphy, 34, quit to become general manager of Century 21.

    Guess selling homes is easier than trying to convince people to buy a newspaper.

    Can't blame him when Quebecor has stripped the paper of its look, given the senior readers a type font so small they can't read and taken away CP.

    Good luck Darren!

  2. That's just one Century 21 office in Peterborough. It's not like the whole company or anything.

  3. Niagara Falls Review publisher Dave Martineau has also 'resigned', though it's obvious he was pushed out. Well-liked by the staff and community, which of course means nothing to this company.
