New FJ editorial leadership lineup

I'm going to ask folks to be direct, but not personal in any comments to the following links. Thanks to a number of folks who sent me links to the new editorial line-up for the Flint Journal and the leadership of the corporate wide copy desk.

A number of folks have already commented on the non-Flint nature of the leadership, which is fair comment.

I will say that I worked with a couple of these folks and Bryn has earned his chops and, like the Shafran pick, bodes well for the new company.

For the sake of Flint and the future of journalism let's hope that this new model, despite my expressed doubts, will work to continue the important work of government oversight and some good paying journalism jobs for young reporters.
