Don Bricker, a former publisher of the Kane County Chronicle, has announced that he is retiring from Shaw Media to pursue a new opportunity in Colorado.
Bricker joined Shaw Media in June 2008 as the publisher of the Daily Chronicle in DeKalb and Kane County Chronicle in St. Charles. He has since served in a number of capacities, and was promoted last year to be vice president of Shaw’s suburban publishing. Earlier this year, he was named publisher of the Morris Daily Herald and The Herald-News in Joliet.
Bricker said he and his wife, Karen, are moving back to Colorado to be near two of their children and their newborn grandson. Bricker said he has accepted a position with Colorado College in Colorado Springs as the associate director of its career center.
Bricker’s last day was Friday. Shaw Media is in the process of looking for Bricker’s replacement.
