Spokesman loses three talented veterans

Former Spokesman-Review Executive Editor Steve Smith said the latest round of layoffs has scared off three of the paper's best reporters. From his blog:

Bill Morlin, Karen Dorn Steele and Dan Webster apparently have informed management of their intention to take contract-mandated severance and leave the paper.


The Spokane Police Department and officers’ union are probably dancing as I write this. If the city moves forward with its plan to hire a police ombudsman, the credit goes solely to Karen and Bill. If the feds ever bring charges in the Otto Zehm case, credit Karen and Bill.
