COWTOWN DEAD TREE MEDIA HOUSE CLEANING!!! KANSAS CITY STAR COLUMNIST LEWIS DIUGUID STEPPING DOWN!!!
The Kansas City newspaper old school is almost completely gone at the largest daily newspaper in town.
Take a look at this headline from a couple of minutes ago . . .
Lewis Diuguid, a longtime member of The Kansas City Star’s editorial board, will be departing the paper along with veteran Yael Abouhalkah, who was laid off this week.
Diuguid has told friends that he intends to step down on Oct. 7, Abouhalkah’s last day at The Star.
Longtime readers were hoping for this move which now leave the Star with nearly no minority representation and with only one member of the editorial board . . . The new publisher/hatchet man who inspired the mass exodus.
Whilst some might tout this as good sign of editorial renewal . . . Other critics of the newspaper might argue that none of this newsprint drama will tear people away from their mobile phones.
