Charles Stacey is no longer the publisher of The Telegram in St. John’s, NL, TC Media says.

Julia Kamula, TC Media senior vice president for Atlantic Canada and Saskatchewan, told J-Source that Stacey left Monday, but she would not confirm rumours that he was fired, saying the company “won’t disclose employee details.”


Stacey joined The Telegram in 1993 as an assistant comptroller and became publisher in 2007, according to the Western Star. Kamula is overseeing operations since Stacey’s departure and current advertising manager Keith Connolly will be filling in as publisher on an interim bases.

“My plan is to asses both the market needs and what The Telegram team needs in terms of leadership before making a decision on a new publisher,” Kamula said.
