A news director departs: Liam Moriarty on journalism and JPR
Diana Ross said it well: "nothing good's gonna last forever." We've had it pretty good (pardon our grammar) at JPR News with Liam Moriarty at the helm.
Liam now hands off to Erik Neumann, to take his retirement and disconnect from the 24/7 world of daily journalism.
Liam's recent Jefferson Journal column about societal attitudes toward journalism and its practitioners generated some public feedback.
We take up that subject and the issue of building a news department in size and scope in an exit interview with the boss.
