Here are the 12 folks leaving the Spokesman-Review

Posted on Thu, Sep 1, 2011 at 1:00 PM

Last month, the Spokesman offered its older, long-term employees a chance for an early retirement. We knew it was coming, and when we ran a brief news item in this week's paper discussing the offer, we knew there were 13 folks who had accepted an early retirement. We just didn't know who they all were.

Now we do: Chris Anderson, Steve Bergum, John Blanchette, Rick Bonino, John Craig, Kevin Graman, Vince Grippi, Gil Hulse, Jeff Jordan,  Jim Kershner, Bart Rayniak, Dave Trimmer and John Kafentzis. (Update: Kafentzis, Editor Gary Graham now tells us, isn't leaving but is eligible to begin receiving his pension.)

What this means for Spokane's only daily newspaper remains to be seen. We asked Graham what he'd do without such veteran talent.

“I’m not about to share any of our internal plans with other media,” he replied via email.
