St. Louis Review Editor Steps Down


Saint Louis Catholic has learned that Jim Rygelski, the Editor of the St. Louis Review, the newspaper of the Archdiocese of Saint Louis, has resigned his position. Multiple sources in the past several days have confirmed the resignation. As of yet, there is no official announcement on the websites of either the Review or the Archdiocese. When more information is available, I will post it.


We wish Mr. Rygelski every success in his future endeavors.

I think the Review has been a generally good paper, better and more orthodox than many. It needs an updated design and a better web presence, but content-wise has been pretty good, though staid in the best tradition of diocesan reportage. A few younger, more spunky columnists would be good and would help it reach a broader audience.

I think it may be due to the "Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good" 1/2 page ad in the 24 Oct paper. Isn't that the one supported by Soros?

Ken, do you have anyone in mind for that "younger, more spunky columnist" position?

Ken said...

Not off hand. I've son studying journalism now who would have a lot of fun with it, tho.

Ken, I thought you might have been subtly suggesting The Tim Man.

Ken said...

No, he should not be the columnist. He should be the editor.

Ken,

If you can get five other people to agree with you, let me know.

Well, I control four votes this election cycle. I can find another one if we can move the minimum age limit down a little.
