Jeff Gauger has resigned his post at the Greensboro News & Record, according to an email from Berkshire Hathaway Media Group Southern Region VP Kevin Mark Kampman to the newspaper’s staff today.
“I am sad to say that Jeff Gauger has chosen to resign his position as publisher of the Greensboro News & Record,” Kampman wrote. “Jeff and I have had a long history together and I will miss him. Jeff was instrumental in a wide range of improvements here at the News & Record.”
Kampman, who is also the publisher of the Winston-Salem Journal, said that beginning today, he will serve as interim publisher of the News & Record “until a replacement can be found.”
“We will launch a search immediately,” he wrote.
Gauger also acts as the paper’s editor in chief. Reached by phone this afternoon, Gauger declined to comment on the matter, but did say, “I’m no longer employed at the News & Record.”
Kampman could not immediately be reached for further comment.
