Don Moores, President of Cariboo Press, announced Friday that Prince George Free Press publisher Lorne Doerkson will be moving on to a new posting.
Mr. Doerkson will take over at the Williams Lake Tribune as publisher and press manager.
“The Tribune is our flagship paper, with 65 employees,” said Mr. Moores. It publishes three times per week and the press plant and mailroom handle 15 papers per week from our other divisions.”
Mr. Doerkson has been with Cariboo Press for over 10 years, having worked at the SalmonArm Observer, Williams Lake Tribune and 100 Mile House Free Press before coming to Prince George in 1998.
“Coming to the Free Press and working in Prince George for the last five years has been a great opportunity for me,” said Doerkson.
“This city is full of great folks and it has been my pleasure to work with them and support this community. I believe the future holds great things for the city and the Free Press.”
Mr. Doerkson’s successor has not yet been named but in the interim Cariboo Press National Marketing Director Wayne Kennelly will fill in.
