Journal gets new editor
UPDATE: News of a new editor appears to come as a big surprise — even to those close to the Journal. At least one columnist for the paper didn’t know until the Blogthing post this morning. After a series of “WTF” tweets following the big announcement, the Twitterverse is strangely quiet.
Breaking news over at the North Coast Journal Blogthing.
Tom Abate, a founding member of the NCJ, is moving back to Humboldt to take the helm, while current editor Hank Sims will “play a crucial role in this evolutionary process by working with Abate as web editor and senior staff writer while also continuing his popular weekly column, the Town Dandy.”
The change is being billed as an “expansion” that will “develop a hybrid form of journalism.”
