New Bern Post is discontinuing operations.
New Bern Post editor Randy Foster and his wife Sarah will be leaving the New Bern area. Randy Foster was editor of the New Bern Sun Journal from 2009-2017 and New Bern Post from 2017 to present.
“It was a great honor to be a journalist in New Bern,” Foster said. “I was among a long list of newspaper editors in New Bern dating to the 1740s.”
Foster has been a journalist for more than 30 years and will continue to look for opportunities in journalism as they arise.
A test merger between New Bern Post and New Bern Now did not work out.
Wendy Card will continue to run New Bern Now. Meanwhile, Bill Hand, formerly of the Sun Journal, has been named editor of New Bern Live.
“I hope that the community supports both of them with their advertising and subscription dollars,” Foster said.
New Bern Post will no longer be updated, and it will go off-line in the next month or two.
