No public announcement for Sims resignation
The Association of Alternative Newsweeklies reports that Hank Sims’ resignation from the North Coast Journal will not be televised or otherwise announced.
Instead, all you get is last week’s scoop by the Humboldt Herald, and this quote from NCJ publisher Judy Hodgson, sent to the AAN:
Hank Sims resigned Friday after more than seven years as a staff writer, editor and web software engineer for the North Coast Journal. He asked that no public announcement be made. We respect his wishes and regret his loss to the Journal family and readers.
News of the sudden shake-up at the NCJ riveted Humboldt County news junkies, driving loads of traffic to this blog and inspiring others to digitally mock Sims’ replacement following heated interview on KSLG radio.
The Humboldt Herald will report Sims’ next journalistic move when it becomes known.
