Kappstatter Nabs New Gig Editing Bronx Times

20 Apr

From the Facebook page of former Daily News Bronx Bureau Chief and must-read political columnist Bob Kappstatter …

Okay, it looks like the cat’s out of the bag before the official press release.
Yes, I am now the editor of the Bronx Times and the Bronx Times-Reporter, two weekly newspapers and their website covering a major swath of the Bronx, and part of Rupert Murdoch’s group of metro area weeklies.
Basically, I’ll be doing what I did for 16 years as Daily News Bronx bureau chief, and working with a great staff to make the papers and their website dazzle and be a prime read.
Founder and Publisher John Collazzi will now focus more on the business side while I have my fun on the editorial side.
And look for the old political/gossip column fairly soon, after I get settled moving in.
Goodbye Mort Zuckerman, hello Rupert Murdoch.

Kappy wrote a couple of terrrific columns for Bronx Matters during the interlude. We’ll miss him here but glad we’ll be reading a lot more of him soon.

    Let me the first to congratulate Kappy on his new gig with the Bronx Times and the Bronx Times Reporter. I am sure he will do an amazing job keeping all of us up to date on the latest happenings in the mighty Bronx.

    Good Luck and Much Success.

    PS. Don’t beat me up too badly. lol
