A crazy end to a crazy story.
Yesterday evening, not long after doing a brief Skype interview with LA-based What’s Trending host Shira Lazar about his recent suspension without pay from the Colorado Springs Gazette, reporter Barrett Tryon tweeted that his job had been reinstated. And… that he was no longer interested in resuming employment with the paper, after being suspended for linking on Facebook to an LA Times article about a change in his outlet’s ownership.
Tryon has quickly updated his Twitter handle & profile. He is now @tryonb and listed as the chief fun officer of his own brand new multi-platform communications firm, Clarke Tryon.
