Boston’s Weekly Dig Editor Michael Brodeur “is no longer with the company as part of an editorial restructuring,” and won’t be immediately replaced, the alternative paper said Friday.
“Michael has been a huge part of the Dig for over four years and we wish him all the best. This wasn’t an easy decision,” Jeff Lawrence, the paper’s founder and president, said in a statement. “I wouldn’t be surprised if his byline shows up in the Dig in the future though. He’s a great writer and it’s already been discussed.”
Lawrence also announced that Alfred Wilson has joined the company as vice president of business and marketing and will oversee all sales operations.
In addition, Wilson will also act as group publisher for Dig Publishing’s custom publishing initiative, which includes Beer Advocate magazine, a nationally distributed glossy niche publication geared towards the better-beer consumer. Dig Publishing also intends to launch “several new in-market publications” in the next year, the company said.
Wilson previously worked at the Phoenix Media Communications Group in Boston for five years before spending two years in management consulting.
