Bozich and Crawford leave the CJ?


It's another nail in the paper's coffin, I'm afraid. And while I hate to see it happen, I'm excited that both of these guys have found a way off of the sinking ship. Don't fully understand the WDRB scenario as a lifeboat, but perhaps with the addition of the two highest paid writers at the paper (I'm assuming) the station is set to make a bid for the U of L contract and become a small-time, locally-based ESPN or something.

That said, the continued diminution of the once-proud CJ is a sad thing to behold. I spent a great deal of my life there, as did my Pulitizer Prize -winning father-in-law, and I remember when people carried handbags in Louisville with the CJ logo and the phrase "We're No. 3" on them. That was because Time Magazine would rate the nation's papers every five years, and the CJ was consistently in the top 10, and one year finished at number 3. Gannett has ended all of that, just as corporate ownership has ended a great deal of journalistic tradition and integrity. It's all changing, and with this latest news from the CJ, I've about exhausted reasons for continuing my subscription.

If this improves local sports coverage, then I'm all for it.
