    News-Press Sportswriter Fired

    Dennis Moran has been fired by the paper.

    ALSO ...

    According to my sources, in addition to Alex Pavlovic, who formerly wrote for the Daily Nexus, the News-Press will hire two more sports writers who will be starting this week.

    AND ...

    Has anyone noticed that the News-Press hasn't been running the weekly feature on the Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table's local "Athletes of the Week?"

    The powers that be at the paper were apparently miffed that the Round Table folks allowed former sports editor Barry Punzal to say a few words of farewell at one of the weekly luncheons after he was abruptly fired by the paper.

    The saga in Santa Barbara continues, with another long-fought, well-earned victory for an editor over News-Press owner Wendy McCaw.

    The item is from LAObserved, but check out the link within to the blog of Craig Smith, who has done some good work from the outset on this long-running and ongoing story.

    For Jerry Roberts and all the other former beleaguered staffers, this has to qualify as a reason to cheer.

    Too bad Roberts' claims were tossed out. I would have liked to see McCaw get bankrupted.
