Sound Off: Clarion Ledger Layoffs Correction

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

In my editorial last week commenting on losing some fine local journalists at the Clarion Ledger I said, " Unfortunately layoffs have claimed some really good local newspaper journalists, like one of my all time favorites Orley Hood and most recently David Hampton, Rick Cleveland and Bobby Cleveland."

I got a call from the Clarion Ledger's new Executive Editor who corrected me. Orley Hood was laid off, but David Hampton, Rick Cleveland, Bobby Cleveland and five others took advantage of the Gannett early retirement program.

I just wanted to set the record straight. I wish all of them the very best.
