Company-Wide Memo: TWT Reporters to Meet New Management Team

TWT newsroom employees learned this morning that the sale of the TWT has finally gone through between News World Communications, run by Preston Moon, and New World Media Development. Details are scarce at this hour. A meeting is scheduled for 11 a.m. where reporters will meet with top brass to gather more of the finite details. The e-mail subject line was hardly dramatic. It reads: “General Meeting Announcement.”

Everyone,

I am pleased to announce that there will be a meeting for all employees this morning (Tuesday November 2, 2010) with the new management team of The Washington Times.  Please assemble at 11:00 in the auditorium.  I look forward to seeing you there.

Thank you,

Frank Grow
Acting General Manager

Politico’s Keach Hagey reported the news of the sale update earlier this morning. Read her piece here.

Stay tuned…

Amberg Leaving WaTimes

From an internal memo, obtained by FishbowlDC:

    Dear Colleagues,

    Dick Amberg will be leaving The Washington Times at the end of October after a decade of distinguished service, most recently as our General Manager and Associate Publisher. Dick has been an outstanding leader, colleague and friend to so many of us here and was instrumental in many of the exciting changes we have implemented over the last 18 months. I know you’ll join me in wishing him the very best in his new endeavors.

    As part of our continuing effort to streamline the newspaper’s operations, I’ve asked Keith Cooperrider, Chief Financial Officer, to take over Dick’s responsibilities overseeing Facilities and Production. And Frank Grow, Vice President for Strategic Development, will assume overall responsibility for Circulation. That means Mark Frankowski, Director of Facilities and Dave Coleman, Director of Production will both report to Keith while Art Farber, Director of Circulation, will now report to Frank.

    Dick will remain with us at least until October 31, 2008 to oversee and assist in this transition.

    Dick joined The Washington Times in early 1999 after more than 20 years of distinguished executive service in the newspaper industry. During most of his tenure at the Times, he presided over all business areas of our company and represented the newspaper throughout the Washington Metropolitan Area. His loyal dedication to the success of The Washington Times and willingness to always go beyond the call of duty will be deeply missed.

    Sincerely,

    Thomas P. McDevitt

    President and Publisher
