Bert Husband, new publisher at The Terrace Standard

Bert Husband appointed as new publisher

With years of newspaper experience, Husband takes over from Rod Link, who’s been publisher since 1991

BLACK Press B.C. North president Lorie Williston has announced the appointment of Bert Husband as the new publisher of The Terrace Standard.

Husband brings more than four decades of experience to the position beginning in the Okanagan in 1981. In 2002, he and his family moved back to Terrace where he has been the senior sales consultant and later sales manager for the past 15 years.

“We are very proud and excited to have Bert take over the helm at the Standard,” Williston said. “Bert’s public relations, communication skills, involvement in local and provincial governments, and the experience he has gained will serve him well in his new role as publisher.”

Husband has served with numerous community groups in Terrace including as board chair of the Terrace Chamber of Commerce, director and as chair of the Terrace Economic Development Authority. Husband has also been involved with Minerals North in 2007 and part of the organizing committee of the 2013 Minerals North event. He has also served on the City of Terrace Co-op Property Task Force.

“I’m very much looking forward to working with the incredible team we have here at the Standard,” Husband said. “There are some exciting times ahead of us as we continue to publish Terrace’s paper of record and grow our multimedia platforms.”

Husband said he is looking forward to this new opportunity in the community where his family, including three grown daughters and two grandsons, currently live.

Husband takes over from Rod Link, who had served as the publisher of The Terrace Standard since 1991.

“Rod has left some mighty big shoes to fill but I want to wish him all of the best in his future endeavours,” Husband said.

In addition to the new role as publisher, Husband will also serve as the advertising sales manager effective immediately.
