Shaun Jessome is the new publisher of The Western Producer.
Jessome, a native of Nova Scotia, had a 28-year career with Sun Media where he performed a variety of roles, most recently as group pub-lisher of six newspapers in Alberta and Saskatchewan.
He also served in the dual role of publisher and advertising manager of the Lloydminster Meridian Booster and Vermillion Standard.
Bob Willcox, president of Glacier Media Agricultural Information Group, which includes The Producer, said Jessome “has always committed strongly to community; he has a terrific record of service but most important, understands how a community connects to its publication.”
Jessome succeeds Larry Hertz.
