While over reading Tony's Kansas City this morning, I came across a link to Bottom Line Communications, a blog that proclaims to be "examining all things media...". He has a post on the recent layoffs the KC Star is doing. One of those names should stand out to Wizards fans, and that's Bob Luder. Luder, along with Pete Grathoff have been covering the Wizards for the past few years. What does this mean for the Wizards coverage in the Star? It could mean a couple things. It could mean that Wizards coverage will now all fall directly on Grathoff to cover, which could mean a drop in coverage for the team in KC's paper of record. It could also mean the Wizards get a low level sports department person that knows very little about soccer covering the team.
As if my complaints earlier about the Star weren't enough, if this is true, I have a feeling we're going to see a dip in coverage at the Star.
