Creative Loafing Tampa celebrates its 25th Anniversary this week and to commemorate they have planned a week's worth of festivities highlighting the eventful history of the publication.
Philadelphia City Paper editor Brian Howard will leave next month to become the editor of two Philly-based magazines.
In an real-time experiment with user-generated content, today City Paper is hosting a reader-submitted photostream on its website to capture all the local Election Day action. "Trouble at the polls? Take a pic. Long lines at your polling place? Take a pic. Thugs trying to intimidate voters? Take a pic," says editor-in-chief Brian Howard. "Get snapping. Then get submitting. You're all poll watchers tomorrow." The photos will be on display at City Paper's homepage and at citypaper.net/electionphotos. Readers can upload photos via the paper's Flickr stream at www.flickr.com/groups/cp_election.
Duane Swierczynski will be leaving this year's AAN convention-host paper later this month to focus on his other life as an author of crime novels and other books, the Philadelphia Daily News reports. The City Paper has confirmed that senior editor Brian Howard will replace Swierczynski as the alt-weekly's editor-in-chief.
Philadelphia City Paper emptied its newsroom Tuesday, sending reporters into the streets of Philly and to New York and Washington to report on the terrorist attacks. The conclusion: "nothing will ever be the same."
