Cincy paper’s biz columnist leaving for PR job
Josh Pichler, the business columnist for the Cincinnati Enquirer, is leaving the paper for a public relations job.
Chris Wetterich of the Cincinnati Business Courier writes, “Pichler’s departure isn’t related to theshakeup in progress at the region’s largest media organization, where staffers who reapplied for new jobs are expected to find out today whether they received one or have been laid off.
“Pichler is taking a job in Cincinnati Bell’s communications department centered on engagement with the media and community.
“‘I’m really excited about the opportunity,’ Pichler said. ‘It’s something I really wanted to do.’
“The proximity of his departure to the Enquirer’s decision to have all of its newsroom staffers apply for jobs is coincidental, Pichler said. The Enquirer is refocusing more of its efforts toward delivering digital content to computers, tablets and cellphones rather than printing a newspaper every day.”
