Prince George Citizen needs new managing editor, is Glacier’s “premier daily in B.C.”

March 5, 2012

So the Prince George Citizen is looking for a new managing editor. See the job posting on Gaulin here.

Of note (and purely in the interest of stirring the pot), Citizen publisher Colleen Sparrow talks smack in the posting, calling her paper “Glacier Media’s premier daily in B.C.” Glacier, of course, has a few other papers with publishers who might dispute that bravado, not the least of which are the Nanaimo Daily News, Kamloops Daily News, and, most notably, the Victoria Times-Colonist.

Add to the fact that the Citizen ran a four-page wrap last election for a mayoral candidate and one wonders if Sparrow has a wing to flap. Or maybe it is the best. Leave a comment (That means you, Tim and Cale).

    Sylvie did not have a choice to stay. Incredibly interesting you did not attempt to defend Nicholson. Spoken and unspoken provides volume. Cheers and good luck.

    See, Michele’s got the right attitude. I’ll make sure our next job posting from Kamloops has the same line in it. 🙂

    Wasn’t this Sylvie Paillard’s position? Hope she’s moved on to bigger and better things.

      We got her. She’s at the other Glacier “premier” newspaper, the Kamloops Daily News.

    Glacier’s hiring record is deplorable. See: Nicholson, Hugh, and Paillard, Sylvie. That the company gave Nicholson a promotion is all you need to know. He ripped the citizen to shreds with no longterm plan at all.

      I’d ask you to elaborate on your drive-by smear of Sylvie and take you more seriously if you weren’t hiding behind a pseudonym. This remark is as classy as it is brave.
