I believe the exit count over there in De La Guerra is 25 since July 6, but that leaves out an uncounted number of non-newsroom defections who have sought greener pastures. My sympathies go out to all, and from our State Street we’ve seen many of the departed land on their feet only to hit the ground running, particularly towards the Santa Maria Times.
So I thought I’d get a jump on some information before I read it in Craig Smith’s Blog.
I would like to be the first to welcome to our website and our newspaper (a local “Freebie”) the smooth stylings of Michael Seabaugh and Starshine Roshell, former News-Press columnists joining the dynamic duo from the mean streets of The American Riviera ™, Nick Welsh and Barney Brantingham.
Seabaugh and Roshell will follow the beats they’ve covered in a local daily paper in weekly web updates and monthly Independent missives. And, as they (we) say in the marketing biz, more. This should be fun.
