I'm hearing rumbles that Pam Siddall (above), president and publisher of the Wichita Eagle, is leaving to become publisher at a McClatchy paper on the east coast. Don't know if or when an official announcement will be made but the rumors are rampant.
I'll have more as the situation develops. That is all.
Update 11/01/09: an anonymous reader says Siddall told her staff she isn't leaving.
Siddall and Chisenhall shot down the rumor a few weeks ago in a newsroom meeting.Update #2 1/04/10: Did you believe Siddall's denial?... looks like she wasn't telling the truth... mere weeks after her denial comes this: Pam Siddall named publisher of The Birmingham News.
