A reporter with a total of four years of experience (but who also edited her college newspaper!) is a "veteran," it seems.

This is an early swing and a miss by Brady, and doesn't bode well for the future of this little project. The old media can probably breathe a sigh of relief at this point.

You hit it on the head, Bob. She's no journalism vet, that's for sure. At the PG she was just another Shrib-Kiddie hire. Can't blame her for leaving the listing mother-ship as it takes on more water. Of course her husband remains at the PG, at least until something else better comes along. Lots of that on North Shore Drive nowadays.

That's funny. I have 4 years of experience at dailies--more if you count stringing--but never considered myself a "veteran". Love the "off-the-cuff" press release weasel wordage from Lexi:

“Billy Penn quickly established itself as the leading innovator in smart, accessible and important local news coverage and reader engagement in Philadelphia,” says Lexi. “I’m honored and eager to bring the best of that model to The Incline, where we’ll be committed to telling Pittsburgh’s untold stories, making the rest easier to navigate and helping bring readers together.”

When it folds, as it likely will, she can apply at the Trib, BCT, Butler Eagle or Observer-Reporter. Oh, and there's the new Mon Valley Independent. "Veteran reporters" can always find a place to land.

Veteran? At 4 years most people just learned where the break room is.
