Some management changes have been made at the Cayman Reporter newspaper, according to staff members there who say a further announcement would come in the next few days.

The daily newspaper plans to bring in Bob Taylor, a U.S. citizen, as its new general manager. According to the Reporter’s majority shareholder, Dr. Steve Tomlinson, Mr. Taylor has not begun work yet. He has previously worked in Cayman as the chief executive officer of Cayman 27’s parent company WestStar TV.

Catherine Tyson has been named the newspaper’s deputy general manager and confirmed she started work there Monday. Ms. Tyson described the changes as a “management shift.”

Newspaper publisher Deon Ebanks was still at the offices Monday and would stay on as a consultant, Ms. Tyson said.

Ms. Tyson said the newspaper intended to remain a daily publication with a significant online presence.
