Stephen Gallagher, a 15-year print media vet and former Brantford Expositor city editor, is the new managing editor at the Niagara Falls Review.
A QMI story says Gallagher, 38, attended Ryerson before interning at the Edmonton Journal. He spent two years as a Medicine Hat News reporter; six years at the Sault Star (three as district editor); six years at the St. Catharines Standard (four years as news editor); and then moved to the Expositor as city editor earlier this year.
"I'm excited to join an experienced, professional newsroom staff and continuing to build on a great print and online product," Gallagher says in the QMI story.
"We're absolutely thrilled to have Steve," said Mark Cressman, publisher at the Review. "I firmly believe this is the best newsroom in Ontario. Adding Steve is that final piece of the puzzle. He's a young guy. He's a go getter. He's from Niagara so he understands the market. We're excited to have him on board."
Sounds like the man for the job. Let's hope newsroom stability and longevity are in the cards.
Sun Media staff cutbacks and troop movements down Brantford, St. Catharines, Niagara and Welland way in the past year or so have been dizzying.
