Sturgis Journal Publisher Fired

Sturgis, MI

(STURGIS) – A change in the leadership at the Sturgis Journal has been made.

Sources who wish to remain anonymous told Swick Broadcasting Wednesday afternoon that Senior Group Publisher Dan Tollefson had been fired for “unbecoming conduct”.

Calls to the Sturgis Journal's parent company, Gatehouse Media, have not been returned.

Tollefson has been the President and Publisher of the Sturgis Journal since 2004. He came to Sturgis after four years in Adrian at The Daily Telegram as the circulation director.

In 2008, Tollefson was promoted group publisher overseeing not only the Sturgis Journal, but the Coldwater Daily Reporter and the Hillsdale Daily News. He was also put in charge of three shopper publications along with two other weekly newspapers.

Then in 2012, Tollefson was named the Regional Advertising Director for Gatehouse Media, overseeing eight daily newspapers and 14 shoppers.

Another promotion was given to Tollefson in June 2013 when he was named Gatehouse's new Senior Group Publisher for Michigan.
