Why did Van Wagner leave before Gazette's Bill Malone arrived?

Why Did Van Wagner Leave Before Gazette's Bill Malone Arrived?

Word going around is that George Van Wagner, one-time GM at the Arkansas Gazette, was fired for irregularities in circulation procedures at the News-Star in Monroe, La. The Gannett chain, which owns both papers, sent another former Gazette GM, William Malone, to replace Van Wagner.

Malone, who has been at the News-Star about four weeks, says the story about Van Wagner is absolutely inaccurate but confirmed that his former colleague is no longer employed by Gannett.

"Van Wagner was fired or, as Gannett says, replaced," claims Jim Shannon of television station KNOE. In a news story Shannon did in August, some News-Star employees complained that all of the 100 or so carriers were being asked to carry ten to 15 extra papers every day and were throwing most of those away.
