My time at @ThePlainDealer has ended. Since Day 1 on Aug. 20, 1990, I worked as hard as I could and was blessed with uninterrupted employment at a great paper, doing what I enjoyed. My colleagues and bosses were/are fantastic. I am @ThePlainDealer for life.— Dennis Manoloff (@dmansworld474) April 1, 2019
On Friday, I turned in what I’ve now learned was my final byline for The Plain Dealer. I’m beyond grateful for 20 years of people trusting me to tell their stories - and for the privilege of working with exceptionally talented, salt-of-the-earth journalists in the @PDNewsGuild 📝— Janet Cho (@janetcho) April 1, 2019
The Plain Dealer laid off photographer Chuck Crow. For five years, readers benefitted from his experienced eye and grace under deadline pressure. As a designer and editor, I was honored to work him for 5 years. Contrary to the joy captured in the these images, I am devastated ... pic.twitter.com/P2wzURvbDz— Tony Lariccia (@TBLariccia) April 1, 2019
I love that my dad wrote his own lay-off obit as his final piece for the Plain Dealer after working there for 30 something years— Christopher Feran (@feranch) April 1, 2019
Signing off with Kenny Loggins ... Plain Dealer career has come to a bittersweet end. Loved every minute of it, save for a few leatherheads. Thank you all!!!https://t.co/pZfPWix8IB— elton alexander (@eaPeeDee) April 1, 2019
