Safe for now

Despite the news about layoffs at the Pilot and the elimination of our Business section starting sometime in January, I am still employed. The management still wants business news and I will continue to lead the team that produces it. The news will simply appear in either the A or Hampton Roads sections.

A valued mentor was not so fortunate in this round. He will be dearly missed. He possesses the best news mind I know and I count myself blessed to have worked for and learned from him.

Hopefully the economy won’t turn much worse and advertising rebounds later next year, otherwise I fear we may be in for more news like this.

  1. With front page news always being business news, it kind of makes sense to incorporate it in with the other sections, but I’ll really miss the separate business section. Ah, but I miss McBee, too, and the nice money I was making…
    Glad you’ve still got a home there. Who was the mentor you lost?
