About Michael Barnum
A newspaper executive with three decades of experience has been hired to lead Times Leader Media Group’s Circulation Department.
Michael J. Barnum will direct all aspects of home delivery, single copy sales and customer service for the Times Leader Media Group, which includes the Times Leader, Abington Journal, Sunday Dispatch, Dallas Post, Weekender, NEPA Energy Journal and other products.
Times Leader General Manager Walt Lafferty said Barnum’s emphasis as circulation director will be on improving delivery performance and customer service.
“We are fortunate to have Michael join the Times Leader Media Group in such a vital role for our customers as we continue to move forward as the No. 1 provider of news and information in Wilkes-Barre and surrounding areas,” Lafferty said.
Barnum joins the Times Leader from The Morning Call in Allentown, where he led that newspaper’s Circulation Department since 2009. While there, he restructured the department and helped establish an early edition for the Morning Call’s Sunday edition that came out Saturday evenings.
Barnum also held leadership roles at established publications — such as The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Palm Beach Post and The Baltimore Sun — and start-ups including The Examiner in Baltimore and Washington.
