My editor emailed earlier today. Tough quarter. Would I be willing to blog for them a little less? Sure.
I feel bad. Businesses that run on ad revenue are really hurting. Old media. New media. No difference.
Two editors left the Courant today. One jumped, the other was pushed. The one who left on his own volition said he couldn’t do what they wanted him to do. It’s good to be principled–and costly.
The Courant and WTIC are consolidating news operations. I’m not sure if that was part of the now-former editor’s decision, though it sounds feasible. Even though the FCC has tried to get the Tribune Company to own one or the other (not both) for years they will combine. Chutzpah.
