Bradley takes helm of Foto News circulation department
As of Monday, Aug. 12, Fred Bradley has been named Circulation Manager for the Merrill Foto News and Wausau Times and Buyers Guide.
A native of Chicago, Bradley brings 11 years of print media circulation to his new position.
Prior to accepting the postion with the Foto News and Buyers Guide, Bradley worked as a circulation director for a paid newspaper in Bend, Oregon, managing a circulatioon of 14,000 newspapers daily and 95 motor delivery routes. Other previous experience includes circulation management for another paid newspaper on the east coast, managing a circulation of 17,000 newspapers daily.
“I’m happy to be back in Wisconsin,” Bradley states.
“Moving back closer to my family was a big reason why I began looking for opportunities in this area. I have family both in the Milwaukee and Racine areas, and Chicago. It’s nice to be back here closer to them and I’m happy to be working for a free weekly publication. I think paid daily newspapers are on their way out and free, weeklies will be the future of the newspaper industry.”
