Edward B. Prial, publisher of The Chief-Leader, has announced that the publication is for sale.
The Chief was founded in 1897 by Joseph J. O’Reilly, and was acquired by Frank J. Prial, Mr. Prial’s Great Grandfather, in 1919. The Chief acquired the Civil Service Leader in 1980, becoming The Chief-Leader. A digital edition was added in 2007. The Prial family has run the publication for four generations.
“Without a next generation to run The Chief-Leader, we are seeking a new owner,” Mr. Prial said. He added, “it has been our family’s privilege to publish news vital to the civil-service community for over 100 years. Through the efforts of our dedicated employees, including longtime editor Richard Steier, we’ve never missed an issue.”
Over the years, hundreds of thousands of New York City, State and Federal public employees and prospective employees have relied on this publication for news about their jobs and career advancement.
“It’s time for The Chief-Leader to pass to a new owner who will take it into the future,” said Joseph Prial, The Chief CEO.
