There are two stories out of Editor and Publisher about Michael Ramirez’s move the the Investor’s Business Daily.
The first explains why Michael decided to go to a niche publication rather than a general daily.
“Bill O’Neil, IBD’s founder and chairman, was very convincing,” replied Ramirez, when interviewed Tuesday by E&P. “And he offered me a position as senior editor as well as staff cartoonist.”
That means Ramirez — a member of the IBD editorial board — will have input on what’s published on the IBD editorial page and may even write columns for the publication.
And the other is that Michael’s work will still be syndicated through Copley.
Copley initially wondered if Ramirez would do business-oriented cartoons for IBD that might not be appropriate for his more than 400 general-circulation newspaper clients. But Glenda Winders, Copley’s vice president and editor, said Tuesday that Ramirez will create cartoons on similar topics for IBD as he did for the Times.
