Speculation that David Yepsen may leave The Des Moines Register

Posted in Brian Duffy, David Yepsen, Gannett, layoffs, The Des Moines Register by adambsullivan on December 4, 2008

David Yepsen, of The Des Moines Register, could be looking to vacate his spot as the paper’s most prolific political columnist.

The Iowa Independent reported two weeks ago that Yepsen is one of three finalists to run the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute at the University of Southern Illinois in Carbondale.
Yepsen’s name arguably holds the most weight out of any byline at the Register. The paper’s publisher announced today that its other most influential editorial figure Brian Duffy is one of 41 employees to be laid off.
Presumably, Yepsen and Duffy hold a faithful readership. Losing both could stand to have an impact on the Register’s circulation.
