Ind.: Muncie’s Metzger assumes second pub post

In the latest consolidation of publisher jobs, Publisher Juli Metzger (left) of The Star Press in Muncie, Ind., will also be publisher of the Palladium-Item in Richmond. The two cities are 41 miles apart.

Metzger replaces longtime Gannett executive Bob Robbins, who is retiring, effective Nov. 30, after less than a year at Richmond.

    I can see this happening with Greenville and Asheville sooner, rather then later. The same goes for Advertising Directors as well I hope.

    Asheville wouldn’t miss a beat without their disconnected Publisher. All he does is play on the internet, walk around downtown pretending to talk to advertisers, and take weekend excursions to Florida in the circulation department’s vehicle. What a waste.

    Sounds like a stand in until the buyer takes over. If that is the case.

    Instead of getting rid of department heads last month, maybe GCI should have considered getting rid of some of the worthless publishers. I bet some of the “disconnected” publishers are running around like chickens with their heads cut off trying to figure out how to run their departments…since they never had anything to do with it before! If GCI cut some publishers they’d save even more money!

    Good luck, suckers. The last paper she was part-time publisher at ended up getting gutted then sold.

    I see more consolidation happening between the two if anything. I highly doubt they will sell Richmond. The are a USA Today site – and recently bought new presses (5 years ago?)

    Wasn’t she at the Marion paper, and didn’t Gannett turn that one over to the foundation before it was sold?

    Still too many high paid publishers. If we axed all the publishers and had general managers then maybe we can keep the talented worker bees and actually produce a worth while product.
