“I am excited to welcome these two excellent papers to SouthComm,” CEO Chris Ferrell said in a statement Tuesday. “Washington City Paper and Creative Loafing are two of the leading alt-weeklies in the country in two of the most influential cities in the world. I look forward to working with the staff in both markets to build on their legacy on strong news reporting and in-depth coverage of dining, music, arts, and culture.”
CL editor Celeste said that the paper’s new editorial overlords have expressed no immediate interest in editorial shifts.
