The Morning Ticker: Dunlap Retires, Mobile Ratings, 2014 Ads

  • Karen Dunlap, the head of the Poynter Institute, is stepping down in January. Dunlap has been the president of Poynter, the journalism training center, since 2003. “We need to take some big steps, and I think it’s time for somebody else to do that,” Dunlap told her staff.
