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.
