From DMN to NYC

    This might be old news, but I hear Rachel Cohen's left Dallas for AP's New York bureau. A good move?

    Don't know where Rachel grew up, but she did attend Duke and seems pretty sharp.

    I know the DMN isn't exactly a picnic these days. And College Station isn't exactly nirvana.

    As is my constant refrain, I hope she can find a gig that provides a good balance between interesting and challenging work and the ability to have something of a personal life.

    It moves her closer to family.

    I believe Juliet Macur made the same move.

    Yes, to the New York Times, not AP.

    AP was looking for a sports reporter on the national desk, so perhaps it's filling that position.

    But sports reporters in New York AP also work the desk.

    I'm pretty sure Rachel went to work for the AP. At least, I had dinner with one of her (former) co-workers two nights ago, and that's what he said. Guess he could have been wrong.

    I read that DMN circulation was down 14 percent (some of that from the overstatement) so yeah, I would say it probably is a good move.

    Any move out of Dallas is good.

    The Morning News is certainly a shell of its former self, but it's still better than a lot of other places. All relative, I guess.

    Perhaps, but if you were looking ahead what would you say the trend would be?

    If you subscribe to the newspapers-are-dying trend, I agree totally. But if newspapers are going to stick around in some form and if the DMN has bottomed out and doesn't get worse, then I think you could argue there are worse places you could be. I realize those are two huge "ifs," however.
