Dallas Morning News loses two biz reporters as part of layoffs
The Dallas Morning News laid off two business reporters as part of its layoffs that are trimming 40 positions — 20 in the newsroom.
The two who were cut are energy and environment reporter Jeff Mosier and retail and real estate reporter Karen Robinson-Jacobs.
Mosier is a 23-year veteran of The Dallas Morning News with experience in almost every news beat. He’s covered dozens of local governments — cities, school district and counties — as well as crime, civil and criminal trials, Congressional races, charter schools, sports business and fandom and the early days of Barnett Shale fracking.
He’s a graduate of the University of Texas-Arlington, and his wife is also a Morning News staffer.
Robinson-Jacobs spent nearly 15 years covering the hospitality industry in North Texas before switching to the real estate beat. Before coming to the Dallas, she spent 15 years at the Los Angeles Times.
She is a graduate of the University of Illinois.
I’ve joined the crowded field of ex-DMNers. Dallas Morning News cut 43 jobs today. I was one of them. So my 24-year tenure — most recently covering energy & environment — is over. I had my dream job writing consequential stories for a major metro daily. So there’s that.
