Detroit Daily Press Photog: “It Was Fun While It Lasted”

detroit daily pressA Detroit Daily Press photographer posted on Facebook about the quick rise-and-fall of the new paper:

“I got the call to pack it in while shooting h.s. football at Ford Field today. After freelancing for ten years and then working at a daily again, I’d forgotten what a privilege it is to be a daily journalist, meeting people from all walks of life, telling their stories and trying to bring a little insight into those different walks of life to the community. It was fun while it lasted.”

Meanwhile, we’re hearing from others that it’s dubious the Detroit Daily Press will re-start up in January. (Know more? Tell us, anonymously if you like.) Apparently it’s not a good time to launch a newspaper. Who knew?
