Gulledge had resigned Monday as regional vice president for Lee and as publisher of the Missoulian, Ravalli Republic and Billings Gazette after being on medical leave following heart surgery.
Lee had named a replacement Tuesday but rescinded its offer after reports surfaced that the former Gatehouse Media executive had "liked'' social media posts condemning the fairness and accuracy of mainstream journalism.
