TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! NEW PITCH OWNERS ARE LOCAL KANSAS CITY MARKETING DWEEBS AND PLANNING ADVERTORIAL GAMBIT!!!
Quick follow-up on a story that has let impact that Kansas City news addicts would like to believe . . .
First up . . .
THE NEW PITCH OWNERS ARE PLANNING AN ADVERTORIAL PLOY TO SAVE THE DYING PRINT RAG THAT COMPLETELY LOST ITS RELEVANCE OVER THE COURSE OF 2017!!!
Turns out, talking up Democratic Party talking points didn't play the bills and now a pair of local advertising gurus have garnered the paper and want to turn it into their vanity press to impress clients with a deluxe and glorified circular.
Friday night, ousted editor Scott "Nicest Guy In The World" Wilson offered his take on the future of the "alt." paper that nobody under 40 cares about . . .
Pitch editor departs, Pitch about to improve
DAVID HUDNALL WILL BE THE NEW EDITOR . . . BUT HE'S WORKING WITH FEWER RESOURCES THAN THE PITCH HAS EVER SEEN!!!
Before we get too excited about promises . . . Remember that earlier this year Mr. Wilson told us about the great glossy future of The Pitch . . . Until that plan flopped and SouthComm sold off its loses.
Again, the impact of this journalism move might not resonate much in Kansas City given that social media chatter from emotionally unstable friends & loved ones has mostly replaced what used to be the local news-cycle.
You decide . . .
