Hello to a new adventure

In March of 2016, a young journalist from KU interviewed with us here at the House of News and was offered the opportunity to toil in the trenches here, serving the Historic Northeast community. A year later in March of 2017, Paul launched our weekly Northeast Newscast Podcast series. Sixty-one episodes later the series is a rapidly growing feature in the expanded Northeast News coverage offerings. In his nearly three years with us at The Northeast News, Paul is one of the major reasons our brand is as widely accepted and respected as it is. It certainly isn’t this long-in-the-tooth newsdog that’s bringin’ the readers in, we can assure you of that.

Paul has accepted a position with the Austin Texas Business Journal as the Associate Managing Editor. He is the second Editor who has gone on to write for an American Cities Business Journal property, the first being Leslie Collins, who now writes for the Kansas City Business Journal. Above are pictures of Paul being recognized for his contributions to community journalism in Kansas City and the unbiased and in-depth coverage he has offered on a number of stories for us here at NEN including the ongoing coverage of the airport issue, as well as his deep dives on stories such as the ongoing 441 Bellefontaine saga and the 18th and Vine funding issues. Paul is also responsible for expertly editing this Newsdog, dialing back some of the more vociferous comments and inferences…thankfully.

The Dog and the staff here at the House of News would like to thank Paul for his endless hours of making sure stories were just right. Not too much, not too little, as close to perfectly unbiased as humanly possible. A nod to the folks at the Austin Business Journal, you’re getting a true renaissance man when it comes to journalists. Top shelf professional all the way across the board.
Thank you, Paul – you will be missed greatly.
