New publisher at The Terrace Standard

Ad consultant Bert Husband is taking on the new assignment

THE Terrace Standard has a new publisher.

As of July 1, 2017, Bert Husband, the newspaper’s senior sales representative since 2002, takes on that role, becoming responsible for overall operations, including print and digital sales, of the newspaper.

He replaces Rod Link who has been the newspaper’s publisher since 1991.

Link has also been the newspaper’s editor since its first issue of April 27, 1988.

Husband is well acquainted with the Terrace and area business community, as a board member of the Terrace and District Chamber of Commerce and on the board of the society which operates the Northwest Regional Airport, northwestern B.C.’s largest and busiest airport.

“With his experience in sales and knowledge of Terrace and area, Bert’s a natural for his new role,” said Link.

Meanwhile, the search for an editor continues and Link will be staying on temporarily while the search for a candidate continues.
