Star Tribune changes use of opinion writers

The paper no longer use the regular rotation of columns by Katherine Kersten, Jason Lewis, Bonnie Blodgett and the team of Tim Penny and Tom Horner.

Although the Strib hasn’t publicly announced it, the Sunday Op-Ex is no longer using the regular rotation of columns by Katherine Kersten, Jason Lewis, Bonnie Blodgett and the team of Tim Penny and Tom Horner.

You may still see columns by any or all of the above on the Strib op-ed page, but it will be on a less regular, and probably less frequent spot basis.

Editorial section chief Scott Gillespie told me that the paper has started a new regular column by D.J. Tice, has space constraints, and “we felt it was time for a change.”
