Greg David Leaves Crain’s For Higher Education

greg.jpgTomorrow will be the last day for Crain’s New York Business‘ editorial director Greg David, who is leaving the pub after more than 33 years at Crain Communications.

David is leaving his full-time gig at Crain’s to become the director of the business and economics program at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism. “I have been teaching there for three years and it is an exciting opportunity,” he said in an email today.

However, David said he will still write a weekly column in Crain’s print edition as well as a daily blog on the Web site, and “may do other editorial projects from time to time,” so he won’t be far from the pub. He’s also planning on making media appearances on WCBS Newsradio 880 and WNYC, giving speeches and moderating panels in addition to his duties at the journalism school.

During his long career at Crain’s, David spent 23 years as editor of the paper, joining just a few months after it started publishing in January 1985. In September 2008, the paper hired a new editor, Xana Antunes, and David moved into the role of editorial director. He previously worked for The Sarasota Herald Tribune and The Charlotte Observer.

McClatchy Dailies Join AP’s Mobile News Network

mcclatchy.jpgNewspaper publisher McClatchy Co. announced today that all 30 of its daily newspapers have joined the Associated Press‘s mobile news network.

“Mobile is a key component of McClatchy’s overall digital strategy,” said Christian Hendricks, McClatchy’s vice president, interactive media in the announcement today. “Adding all our websites to AP Mobile makes it easier for consumers to access our local news and helps expand overall readership in our newspapers’ markets.”

Two McClatchy papers, The Miami Herald and The Sacramento Bee, joined AP Mobile last year. The company’s Miami-based Spanish-language paper El Nuevo Herald, is also already a member of the network, becoming the first Spanish-language paper to be featured on the U.S.-Spanish section of AP Mobile.

Now, McClatchy’s other daily papers, including The Charlotte Observer, The Kansas City Star and The Anchorage Daily News, will be joining as well.

“The addition of McClatchy’s full network of newspapers further enriches AP Mobile’s wealth of local news coverage,” said AP’s senior VP of global product development Jane Seagrave. “No other mobile news services combines so many original sources of credible, breaking news in a single, easy-to-navigate application.”

Hopefully, the deal will help fortify McClatchy, which has been struggling with debt restructuring and layoffs this year. It certainly can’t hurt, especially as the AP works to develop new ways to protect its content online.
