“Beginning Feb. 1, Chad Wingo took over as publisher for the local newspaper, which was established in 1864. Wingo has worked for The Union in advertising sales for 10 years,” as the newspaper reported. (Note: Comma inserted before “which” to conform with the AP Style Guide).
As previously reported, The Union was sold to Gold Hill California Media. “The new owners have newspaper assets throughout the United States and Canada, including several in California,” according to a press release.
Wingo has been co-owner of Grass Valley Brewing Co. in downtown Grass Valley. I’m sure Chad will handle any potential conflicts of interest among advertisers with professionalism.
