Newspaper-business veteran Randy Holt has joined Black Press’s Sylvan Lake News team as publisher.
Holt replaces the outgoing Michele Rosenthal, who recently assumed a regional publisher’s role for several other Black Press publications in Central Alberta.
Holt is a vastly experienced, 26-year Black Press employee, whose previous roles with the company have seen him involved in the management of advertising sales including national accounts, new media and the distribution centre.
In addition to the Sylvan Lake News, he’ll oversee operations at the Eckville Echo, the Castor Advance and the Stettler Independent.
“I look forward to continuing and building further the solid rapport these newspapers currently have with readers and advertisers in their respective communities,” said Holt.
