In an attempt to bolster its sagging fortunes, the Toronto Star cleaned out its senior management yesterday by firing its two top managers.
Michael Goldbloom, who joined Canada's largest daily newspaper as publisher in 2003, and Giles Gherson, who has been editor-in-chief for two years, were relieved of their duties by Robert Prichard, chief executive of Torstar Corp., amid speculation of a rift between some members of Torstar's board of directors.
The flagship Star had, until yesterday, largely escaped the scalpel that had dug into Torstar's other divisions in recent months in an attempt to cut costs and help boost profits.
Apparently only Torstar's Harlequinn assets are profitable these days. Warren Kinsella (as media columnist for the Post) has been taking shots for a while now at the paper down on One Younge.
I also wonder about the Star's relative health to the other newspapers in Canada.
