Lansing ad director Jodway leaving company

Just got this from Brian Priester:

It is with sadness that I announce that Advertising Director Pam Jodway is leaving LSJ Media to become Vice President of Marketing at LEAP (Lansing Economic Area Partnership). Pam has served LSJ Media for eight years - first in the role of marketing director and for the last four years as advertising director. She has made significant contributions to our success during her tenure and will be missed. I’m sure you join me in wishing Pam well in her new role. Pam’s last day with us will be Friday, August 21 so make sure you take the opportunity to stop by and wish her well personally.

This was moved here from the layoffs forum. It was posted by "Guest."

Interestingly, no announcement has been made yet in the NNCO group. This is a big deal because Stacia involved herself in everything.

Once again — consolidation. I feel bad for the people who have to handle this mess.

I think Stacia leaving is a good thing. I would bump Linda Greiwe, NNCO President/Publisher back to advertising. That is her background. Install a Buchanan puppet.

Greiwe is a horrible publisher. If you are not an a$$ kisser, watch out. She has let too many good people go under the guise of consolidation.

80K for an audience development editor... get real... position should be about 4ok in the market
