John Downing, a Tely/Sun newspaper vet who had a recent brush with death, shows why his keyboard prose would have been greatly missed with a blog posting about Tely-Star newspaper war stories.
John's replay of his favourite newspaper war stories follows Peter Worthington's Front Page tales in the Sunday Sun. Great reads and one more argument for these vets to collaborate on a new Tely/Sun book.
John, Peter and other Toronto print media vets are from a news era long gone from most of today's sterile newsrooms. Their memories need to be penned for future generations to appreciate the feisty days of print dominance.
Meanwhile, John and Peter, keep 'em coming.We can't get enough of your newspaper experiences.
