More on those Michigan newspaper changes

Guess I should have waited to tell you about some of those promotions and changes at Michigan newspapers.

Quick. Head over to mlive.com and catch Giddy up: Look who's back in the saddle again
It is especially good news for those who follow the Flint Generals.

An article in Sunday's Flint Journal also announced Bruce Gunther is returning to The Flint Journal as sports coordinator. He was the former sports editor for The Bay City Times and The Flint Journal. He left as sports editor of The Journal at the end of May after accepting a buyout earlier in the year.

Bryn Mickel's promotion to assistant community editor also was noted.

Readers reminded me I overlooked some folks in the update, including Jason Christie, who joined The Journal as a sales consultant in May 2008. He had been a regional sales manager for ISource Worldwide and web services manager for AlliedMedia.

 By the way, I noticed the beat page for The Journal was recently updated.The contact page now has Marjory Raymner as Community Editor, the top ranking editorial position in the new scheme of things, among other changes. The Community Newspapers beat page and one for the advertising staff  look like they were recently updated although the update tags still reads 2008. Alas, the page listing editors and the general contacts page still needs work.
