Watch the bouncing ball
THE BYLINE on the Cleveland Cavaliers coverage in the Beacon Journal today will be vanishing soon. Brian Windhorst will assume the same role as the team's beat writer for the Plain Dealer on Oct. 6. In the daily ebb and flow of both papers' staffs, a familiar name will no longer be associated with the PD. Stuart Warner, former columnist with the BJ who was a special projects editor for the PD, is out the door with whatever settlement the PD offered him. With growing evidence of interactive journalism, buyouts and early retirements, readers will have to check their programs regularly to learn who is working for whom and who is not working at all.
