ELLSWORTH — Cathy Marshall has joined MaineStay Media as circulation manager for The Ellsworth American, Mount Desert Islander, Camden Herald, Courier Gazette, Free Press and Republican Journal. She brings 12 years of experience from the Penobscot Bay Press newspaper group.
In addition to responsibility for mailed and digital subscriptions, Marshall oversees newspaper delivery and inventory management for all of the retail locations where the papers are available for sale. For The Ellsworth American and Mount Desert Islander, Marshall manages the Newspapers in Education program as well. NIE provides, upon request, either printed or digital subscriptions to teachers in Hancock County for classroom use with their students.
“I am so excited to be with the MaineStay group,” Marshall commented. “Plus, I’m prepping to launch the NIE program for the Midcoast papers for this coming school year, so that’s even more exciting!”
Marshall went on to note that she’s looking for new retail locations for the newspapers, always looking to increase overall circulation, and is currently taking reservations for NIE papers and digital subscriptions.
“It’s great to have Cathy on our team,” said Publisher Chris Crockett. “She’s a true professional and is full of energy. She’s a great asset to our family of news publications and I am confident that our circulation will grow with Cathy on board.”
