Bottom Line Communication on Star’s Diuguid

Friday, March 27th, 2009

Bottom Line Communications:

How bad are things at the Kansas City Star these days? So bad that the word from a variety of sources is that veteran Lewis Diuguid, who lost his long-time column in December after 21 years, will now give up his Vice President title and take a major pay cut.

The options offered him are still better than those given to many other folks at Kansas City’s largest paper during its most recent round of layoffs and cutbacks (see list).

Despite his change in status, Diuguid will be on the Star’s Editorial Board helping to shape the newspaper’s views on issues.

Diuguid, a lightning rod for criticism by conservatives for his often inflammatory views on race relations, is said to be losing his Vice President of Community Resources title along with a pay cut to now be a writer.
