Three More Departures at The Plain Dealer

Posted By on Thu, Jan 3, 2013 at 9:20 AM


In a year that has seen some of the top talent at The Plain Dealer either exit or contemplate exiting as substantial changes to the paper's business and editorial operations await, the goodbyes aren't stopping.

According to a couple of sources at the PD, three more have made their way to the door: Joe Guillen, reporter at the Statehouse; Karen Long, books editor; and Debbie Van Tassel, features editor.

Meanwhile, it wasn't too long ago that publisher Terry Egger announced that he'd stay on through the full transition, whatever form that takes, which should come by late summer. He had previously said he'd retire this week.
