New president takes helm at Tulsa World
Tuesday, May 12, 2020
Bernie Heller has been named president and director of local sales and marketing for the Tulsa World. He joined Tulsa World Media Company in 2019 as vice president of advertising and marketing. Prior to that, he served as regional vice president of sales for local advertising with McClatchy Corporation’s Carolinas region.
The appointment is effective immediately. Former Publisher Gloria Fletcher is no longer with the company.
Heller's career also includes vice president and chief revenue officer of The Charlotte Observer in Charlotte, North Carolina, and vice president of advertising for The State Media Company in Columbia, South Carolina. He was formerly vice president of advertising for The Dallas Morning News.
“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to serve Tulsa World Media Company in this new role and honored to be a part of Lee’s unwavering commitment to Local media,” Heller said. “Tulsa is a vibrant community, and I’ve grown very fond of this amazing city and the folks that call it home.”
Lee Enterprises purchased the Tulsa World in March. It is a leading provider of news, information and advertising in 77 markets across the country.
