Daily News publisher takes job in California

Former Longview Daily News publisher Linda Lindus has been named publisher two MediaNews Group newspapers in California, the Daily Breeze in Torrence and the Long Beach Press-Telegram in Long Beach. Her last day at the Daily News is Aug. 14.

Lindus joined Lee in 2000 as publisher of the Southern Illinoisan in Carbondale, Ill.

On the Los Beach (California) Guild blog, you can read several comments about Linda Lindus and her management "style."

There are many unanswered questions about how Lindus, an abrasive manager, exited (was fired from?) the Longview Daily News (and Lee) and managed to find a job at the Long Beach newspapers.

Linda Lindus also had a stint at Lee's Decatur Herald and Review.

I never worked with or for her but the people I know who did never had anything good to say about her so I'm not surprised to hear that said about her in Longview.
