The Next Curry


Via the Connecticut Gazetter:

The Courant has to hunt up a new left-leaning columnist to replace Bill Curry, who ended his column last Sunday. How they do this will say a lot about how well they grasp the changing industry. One possible move would be to reach back toward such “old hands” as Michelle Jacklin and David Fink. They certainly know the territory. But a move like that is an admission that the Courant is stuck in “old news” thinking. The next four years will be about some kind of convergence of media, with a heavy emphasis on the online product. Would the Courant be better off looking for somebody with a little more digital expertise and orientation? (Maybe even somebody who likes to shoot, edit and upload video. But that might be asking too much.)
