A couple years ago when CC Times then-publisher John Wilcox was elevated to Ottaway Newspapers H.Q., the G.M. Peter Meyer was named to replace him.
The newspaper did not name a replacement for Meyer and thus saved the expense of a General Manager's salary.
On Wednesday Publisher Meyer named former Editor for News Paul Pronovost to replace top Editor Cliff Schechtman who left in August.
No one was named to Pronovost's old position. The Times thus saves his former salary .
Pronovost has worked at The Times for five years but still lives in Fairhaven which is across the harbor from New Bedford.
