Linda Hastings is moving to The Sun in Baltimore to become vice president of advertising. She most recently was with Copley Press, owner of The San Diego Union-Tribune, where she had served as publisher of Today?s Local News. Copley scaled back the free home delivered paper last September.
In her new position, Hastings will oversee the advertising department of more than 100 sales and support staff. She starts March 19.
?[Hastings?] wealth of experience in ad sales and publishing makes her well-suited to help our advertisers grow their business,? Rondra Matthews, publisher of the Sun, said in a statement.
Prior to Hastings? job at Copley, she was the owner and publisher of Loot, a weekly classified publication distributed to more than 2,700 newsstands in New York. She also served in the advertising departments at The Plain Dealer in Cleveland, Newsday, the New York Daily News, and The Orlando Sentinel.
