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
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.
