Bob Dutton, who has served as the team's beat reporter since 2000, announced yesterday that he had accepted a new job.
"A heads up: this twitter handle and its focus will change in a few weeks. Have accepted a job in Tacoma to cover the Mariners," Dutton tweeted. Dutton will be covering the Royals through the upcoming winter meetings. Then he'll move to Tacoma to cover the Seattle Mariners for the Tacoma News Tribune.
For example: Infusion Express, the surprisingly not-liquor-related business at the center of Gish's trend piece today, which is about the latest in lightly overseen treatment options for sick 99-percenters. The headline alone - "More like spas than clinics, infusion centers offer a new twist on IVs" - promises that having a drip administered closer to a DSW than to an ER is practically a Carnival cruise. Just look at the "massaging" chairs in that photo. Posh! Not depressing or creepy at all!
A few days into the Affordable Care Act's health-insurance marketplace is obviously the perfect moment to pimp for-profit ventures in quasi treatment. But maybe someone at the daily could enterprise a couple of follow-up questions.
In an extremely uncomfortable segment that will air on The Queen Latifah Show today, Shifrin says, of her video, "I think sometimes you need to forcefully close one door for the other one to open a little easier." (What?) And then Queen Latifah does the big reveal and offers Shifrin a job called "digital content producer." Whatever. Watch it below. In related news, Queen Latifah has her own TV show.
UMKC spokesman John Martellaro tells The Pitch that Kraske will begin teaching as an associate professor this semester, which began August 19. "Basically everything in the journalism department, he'll be teaching," Martellaro says. "Steve told me he's going to continue to write his Saturday column and do some other projects for the paper on a spot basis."
The story certain has all the elements of long-weekend, veg-out viewing: Love was pastor of New Hope Baptist Church, where the Stones were members. He and Teresa Stone reportedly had a years-long affair, which ended with Randy Stone's murder at his insurance office in Independence. Love then went on the run and was discovered in South Carolina working as a trucker. He pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in November 2011. Watch a super-sexy clip after the jump.
"I wasn't really looking to leave TV news," he told Charles Ferruzza at the time. "But the idea of making a complete career change had certainly crossed my mind. I wasn't sure if I wanted to stay in TV news for my entire professional career." Now, he's moving on again.
The Kansas City Star's resident Flat Earther has been a little adrift since the election ate his brain. Like a new retiree, McClanahan has had to learn what to do with the free time that comes with no longer sucking Paul Ryan's Rand sac. Then again, a writer more conversant with the nuances of 21st-century media - and less beholden to the hoariest conservative talking points - might be excited to stake out fresh turf at the dawn of President Obama's second administration.
The latest thing steaming up his little glasses is a golden oldie: climate change.
Jabulani Leffall abruptly quit as host of KCUR 89.3's Central Standard on Wednesday after an unfocused show in which he stumbled over words, made strange declarations about a "new world order." He ended the show a bit early and signed off with this:
"This is a new world order on Central Standard, and my last broadcast at KCUR 89.3 FM. I'm Jabulani Leffall, signing off in the words of Gil Scott Heron: The revolution will not be televised. The revolution is live."
He did not tell KCUR management before the show that he was going to quit. In the aftermath of his on-air resignation, Leffall has not made public comments. Late Friday afternoon, a close friend told The Pitch that Leffall's behavior on the air was not the result of substance abuse.
"I can confirm for you without a doubt that it's not drugs or alcohol," the friend said. The friend also said that Leffall will likely want to speak publicly about what happened when he is able to.
During his last show (listen here), Leffall interviewed Susan Crawford, author of Captive Audience: The Telecom Industry and Monopoly Power in the New Gilded Age. Leffall rambled and said odd things, and opened the show by saying, ""That's the type of world we live in right now. A new world where everything is live."
Leffall took over KCUR's 10-11 a.m. time slot from Kansas City radio legend Walt Bodine in October 2010.
CBS Sports launched the 24-hour network in more than 100 markets nationwide today. Hosts Jim Rome, John Feinstein and Doug Gottlieb (the former ESPN host has been a regular guest on 810 AM sports shows) are the names you're most likely to recognize (a current schedule is available here). Damon Amendolara is among the local hires, hosting the D.A. Show between 1 and 5 a.m. Kansas City has received a lot of national attention for its sports teams in the past year, so perhaps it's appropriate that 2013 kicks off with a national sports talk station.
The show's initial episodes have him traveling the country to meet with local chefs in an attempt to use local cooking techniques on species that threaten a given ecosystem.
