Romanelli out

TSF sources say Jack Romanelli was pink-slipped at the Toronto Sun today.

No further details were available, but in May 2008 it was rumoured Romanelli was brought into the Sun newsroom at the expense of two highly praised veterans, Tim Fryer and Darren "Woody" McGee.

Fryer and McGee were shown the door before Romanelli entered the building. Management described him as a newsroom manager, but his name was rarely mentioned by TSF tipsters.

(Fryer and McGee were quickly picked up by the Toronto Star. McGee recently moved on to the National Post sports department.)

Romanelli's previous print media stays were at the Montreal Gazette, Cornwall Standard-Freeholder and the defunct Halifax Daily News.

TSF won't be posting a couple of anonymous comments sent to us today. Suffice to say, the contributors sense Romanelli will not be missed in the newsroom.
