KCRW’s Gary Scott Ends Media Blog

KCRW news program director Gary Scott is ending his media blog after four years.

The former reporter at the Claremont Courier, Pasadena Star-News and LA Daily Journal started the blog as a way to keep writing. With his current gig at KCRW taking up a majority of his time, Scott is pulling the plug for good:

Years have passed and I have moved into management at a public radio station. I don’t have time to offer the frequency of updates necessary to keep the blog moving.
Instead, I’m going to take what I learned from in the last few years, including from work on this blog, to do my job better. I’ll continue to write here and would appreciate to hear from people who to discuss what comes next. But I won’t be a reliable repository of job cut updates anymore.
Onward.
