Copy Editor (Former Employee) – Calgary, Alberta – 19 September 2013
As publisher, I would hold meetings first with advertising staff and later with editorial staff to get an idea about their appointments. I would also give my input ad sales people and story ideas to reporters. I was also in charge of writing editorials.
The hardest part of the job was to ensure that the company had enough revenue every month to pay staff and cover other expenses. The weekly newspaper business is very compettive and had to work hard to meet commitments.
Enjoyed being a publisher of a medium size town and the respect that was given to the position.
Invited to most public functions.
A weekly newspaper publisher has to be on duty 24-hours and even field calls at home.
