    From thebiglead.com

    "The mass exodus from newspapers to the internet continues. The Big Lead has learned that two more sports writers have lost interest in being ink-stained wretches and bolted for the riches of the web: Jason King, an APSE-winning journalist from the KC Star, and Johnny Ludden from the San Antonio Express-News have both been hired by Yahoo Sports. King will cover colleges; Ludden the NBA. The third hire is not official yet, but could be by the end of today: Steve Politi of the Newark Star-Ledger is set to join the website as a columnist."

    Big loss for Express-News, but they'll find someone.

    Yahoo has a chance to do everything the National wanted, but ultimately couldn't, do.

    I keep hoping Google will decide it wants to do the same.
