Preston Citizen Editor
Greg Madson, publisher of the Tremonton Leader, was named publisher of the Preston Citizen Friday in place of long-time publisher Kelly Mickelsen. The father of five gathered the staff recently to introduce himself as the publisher and assure them the decision was based on economics. The Citizen parent company, Pioneer Publishing, was making changes in several of their publications.
“Mickelsen was a great guy and did a terrific job as the publisher. I consider him a friend. We have had a good relationship over the years. He loved the Citizen and put his heart and soul into the paper. It had to do with economics,” Madson said.
