AADL Talks to Mary Morgan
Thu, 10/20/2011 - 12:17pm by amy
Before she started the Ann Arbor Chronicle with husband Dave Askins, Mary Morgan worked at the Ann Arbor News where she served as Business editor and later oversaw the Opinions desk. Mary recalls what attracted her to Ann Arbor and the News and she contrasts a typical mid-1990s day in the newsroom with running her online-only news site. She touches on some of the challenges of working the Opinions desk under News Editor Ed Petykiewicz; how the News responded to major changes in the industry; and the decision by Booth Newspapers to close the paper in 2009.
