New local newspaper emerges in Bellingham

Seattle Times

The as-yet-unnamed paper will launch in January with a weekly print edition and a daily report online. Syre hired a colleague of mine, Ron Judd, as executive editor to lead a staff of six to 10 people.

Both Judd and Syre said they respect The Bellingham Herald, the local daily, and want it to succeed. But that paper, now part of a hedge-fund-owned chain, has downsized, dropped Saturday editions and covers less local news.

Western alum Ron Judd, who teaches in the WWU Journalism Department, is the new newspaper's editor.
