Kapos takes column to Chicago Sun-Times
Shia Kapos, who has been writing a regular column for Crain’s Chicago Business until she left there in March, will now write for the Chicago Sun-Times, reports Robert Feder.
Feder writes, “her newsy ‘Taking Names’ column to the Sun-Times, where it will run twice a week, starting June 20. The move will coincide with the launch of her independent blog, also called ‘Taking Names.’
“Content for Kapos’s print column will be aggregated from her blog posts, according to Jim Kirk, publisher and editor of the Sun-Times. ‘It will be personality-driven,’ Kapos said of her new blog and column. ‘I’ll be looking at what people do away from the office. You’re going to see more stories about the intersection of business and politics . . . and more scoops.’
“Until last March, Kapos was a fixture at Crain’s Chicago Business, where she spent 10 years as senior reporter and columnist. Before that she was Midwest correspondent for People magazine, staff reporter for the Chicago Tribune and a contributor to the New York Times.”
