December 22, 2008 News

The LA Times FINALLY updated its web site staff list, and I'm wondering if it's correct to infer from Sandy Banks's designation as "staff writer" that she's no longer a columnist?

From Minnesota Public Radio (full press release here):

American Public Media is cancelling weekly production and distribution of Weekend America as a result of the current economy's impact on station carriage and sponsorships. The final broadcast will be January 31, 2009. Thirteen full- and part-time positions will be affected. Weekend America is carried on 134 stations with a weekly audience of about 657,000 listeners.
