South Florida Sun Sentinel Publisher Nancy Meyer left the company effective Thursday.
“For the past 2? years under Nancy’s leadership we have better positioned our newsroom and sales teams for the future,” Tribune Publishing CEO Terry Jimenez said in an email to staff announcing the changes late Thursday.
Meyer will join the Miami Herald as president, responsible for the business operations of the Herald and el Nuevo Herald.
Paul Pham will serve as interim general manager for the Sun Sentinel and the Orlando Sentinel.
“Paul has been in the publishing industry for 19 years and has spent most of it with the Tribune Publishing company, holding a variety of leadership positions in finance, sales, strategy and operations,” Jimenez said. “In his most recent role with Tribune, Paul oversaw financial planning and analysis, data planning, sales enablement, and our syndication and programmatic operations.”
Pham said he was “humbled and excited” to join the Sun Sentinel and Orlando Sentinel.
“Both media groups have produced meaningful journalism and best-in-class advertising solutions for their communities,” Pham said in a written statement. “I am looking forward to continuing that tradition by working closely with the experienced Florida leadership team, our talented employees and community leaders.”
Meyer said the decision to leave was difficult. “And it should be considering the great team of individuals that I am leaving," she said in a statement. "The team here, no matter their role, are dedicated, smart and committed to the mission of providing great journalism to South Floridians. The Sun Sentinel is better positioned to serve our readers and advertising partners, and I trust that Paul Pham and the local leadership will ensure this stays as the highest priority.”
