Word on the street is that Ray Stafford at the El Paso Times had a not so nice send off from the El Paso Times.
Sources tell me that he was given little to no notice of his pending departure. The best I can tell he was approached and told that they were going to get a new publisher and that he needed to retire or resign. Stafford allegedly said he’d stay on until they found a replacement and he was allegedly told the replacement has been found, is in the building, and will be addressing the staff at 10:00am.
That’s the way I heard it went down.
For what it’s worth, I hear great things about the new publisher.
