The Guild extends its congratulations to George Hearst on his promotion to publisher of the Times Union.
George is known for being affable and approachable, and he knows many, if not most, of the employees on a first-name basis.
He also is well-known for his involvement in the community.
Yes, he’s been the Company’s chief negotiator during these exceedingly difficult contract talks but we are cautiously optimistic he will set a fresh tone now that he is publisher. We look forward to working with George as a partner in keeping the Times Union a vital part of the community for many years to come.
