Michael d'Oliveira, the Wilton Manors Gazette’s news editor and main reporter, has accepted a job as the Pelican’s Editor in Chief. He starts his new position on June 25.
“While we are sad to see Michael go we wish him the best of luck with his new job,” said SFGN Executive Editor Jason Parsley. “Most of all though we thank him for helping us build the Gazette from scratch.”
Parsley credits d'Oliveira with making the Gazette an editorial success.
“Before d'Oliveira’s consistent coverage of Wilton Manors, the city was an afterthought of our local mainstream newspapers,” Parsley said. “I am confident d'Oliveira will lead the Pelican to success.”
The Pelican is a weekly newspaper that focuses mostly on Pompano Beach, but also covers Deerfield Beach, Lighthouse Point, Lauderdale-By-The-Sea, Wilton Manors, Oakland Park, Hillsboro Beach, The Galt and Palm Aire.
