A Newsroom Story For My South Dakota Friends

From media blogger and former Milwaukee reporter Jim Romenesko:

Self-described “cranky, gray-haired reporter” Kevin Woster quit the Lee Enterprises-owned Rapid City Journal on Wednesday afternoon.rapid His wife, Mary Garrigan — a Journal reporter, food blogger, and religion writer — walked out too. (I’m told they were the longest tenured newsroom employees.)
“We can no longer work for that organization and its management,” Woster writes on his Facebook wall. “It’s too diminishing, too demeaning. ..We could not, would not eat what they wanted us to eat today.”
