Guardian Reports on 'Structural Changes' at Valley Freedom Papers


The Rio Grande Guardian, an Internet publication that covers the Texas/Mexico border, has reported that major structural changes will take place at Valley Freedom Papers.

The I-publication reports: "Steve Fagan, editor of The Monitor of McAllen, is to assume the additional duties of Rio Grande Valley executive editor for the Valley Freedom newspaper group, the Guardian has learned.

"Under changes to be announced on Sunday, the Guardian understands, the editors of the Valley Morning Star, the Brownsville Herald and the other Valley Freedom titles will report directly to Fagan.

"As part of the same reshuffle, Benita Mendell, the general manager of The Monitor, is to assume the additional duties of Rio Grande Valley regional advertising director for the Valley Freedom newspaper group. The hope is that Mendell can win back lost advertising revenues for the group.

"Details of the changes were announced to staff members at the group's various newspapers via e-mail on Monday. The announcements are expected to be made public in Sunday’s editions of The Monitor, Valley Morning Star, and Brownsville Herald."

Another fine example of cut-and-paste journalism.

Keep up the good work.

Yup. I don't get paid to be a journalist. Blogging is a hobby done during spare time when I'm not at my full-time job or being a full-time mother. So, cut-and-paste, it is, until further notice. Besides, is there a rulebook to blogging I'm missing?

If blogging is such a burden on you then why continue?

Brownsville will go on with or without this blog.

I'm sorry, where is it that I state it's a burden? Never said that. I did, however, state it was a hobby. I do it, because I enjoy it, but I won't adhere to anyone's mandates or expectations other than my own. Why? Because it's my blog.

Yes, Brownsville will go on. That's a no brainer.

God be with the Herald staff. They are going to need it with Marcia Caltabiano-Ponce. Bad move for the paper.

Ah... Most of it is just "cut & paste" anyway..

Haven't we decided that "C&P" is a lower life form?

Thank God for static IPs that name the company of origin.

BTW, how's the new job?
