Publisher: City Pulse
I started City Pulse in 2001 (just before 9/11) after 30 years in mainstream journalism and academia. I started as a reporter at the Philadelphia Bulletin, a 700,000-circ. daily , then joined The Louisville Times as a statewide political reporter, which led to its D.C. bureau, then to Scripps Howard to cover Congress. I became an editor in the bureau (and ran the chain's 1984 Olympic coverage in L.A.), then to Knoxville as m.e. and York, Pa., as exec. ed., then a brief stint in D.C. as UPI bureau chief. I took a leave to be a visiting prof at the University of Okla. -- where of all places I came out, effectively ending my mainstream career. I ran the student newspaper at Michigan State University for seven years before starting CP.
