Jim Romenesko to 'Semi-Retire' From Poynter

Media blogger will launch his own site in 2012

Twelve years after starting his influential media news blog on the Poynter Institute’s website, Jim Romenesko is ready for a break—at least from a full-time role at Poynter. In January 2012, he’s launching his own site, JimRomenesko.com, and will “semi-retire” from Poynter, the Huffington Post reported today.
