Ontario newspaper publisher Peter Winkler has retired after 36 years in the industry. As publisher of the Fairway Group, Winkler oversaw operations at the Cambridge Times, Waterloo Chronicle, Kitchener Post, Guelph Tribune and New Hamburg Independent. Winkler first joined the Fairway Group as a sales manager for the Cambridge Times in the 1980s. He went on to hold numerous leadership roles within the organization and with Metroland Media.
Donna Luelo will now take on the role of publisher for Fairway Group in addition to her current responsibilities as publisher of the Waterloo Region Record. “I look forward to working with the talented team at the Fairway Group of community newspapers. These are successful, thriving newspapers that have served their communities very well,” said Luelo. “We expect the tradition to continue.”
