    That circulation number knocked me over. Last I looked, mid-40s.

    McClatchy sold it; not sure if it was to Ogden or Black.

    Anyway, circulation is down because it's a PM paper in an AM world, but there are at least two veterans in that department who are great writers and reporters and even better people. They don't cover preps like they used to because they simply don't have the resources, but there's some great prep football and basketball programs in the coverage area, and I believe they still cover all Colts home games.

    And the night editor is a White Sox fan. :D

    Aren't there two papers in Fort Wayne? Did they merge or did one go under?

    Two papers, two owners, one building. Journal-Gazette (AM) is family-owned.

    decent area, but Pallister said it best. PM paper in an AM world.

    It's not that big of a deal. What is a big deal is that Ft. Wayne is still a two-paper town.

    Journal-Gazette is the first place I ever interviewed, and my trip there was my first in an airplane.

    Has it really been 25 years?

    I once interviewed there too. I flew in a plane where there was one row of seats and each of the seats were folded down. It was a very bumpy ride. After reaching Cincinnati where I was to change planes, I swore I wouldn't step foot in a plane like that or take the job if offered. I didn't get the gig so I never stepped foot on another plane like that.
