Jekel out at the Star

Dateline: Wed 10 Sep 2008

Thanks to a reader who keeps her eye on Gannettblog, we know that longtime community newspaper boss Tom Jekel was laid off or let go from the Star Tuesday.

Jekel came to Indy from Lansing, Mich., before Gannett came to town. He ran the Topics and Noblesville Ledger newspapers.

His official title at the time of his departure was general manager for community newspapers, which, considering how the bureaus are no longer the money-making machine they started out to be, made him expendable.

Best of luck to Jekel. He's in his mid to late 50s, so, as one friend suggested, let's hope he got a nice parting package.
