On the other hand, as a result of the announcement that Marketplace was ending with the April 12 issue, I've gotten after-the-fact validation that, yes, people did notice my work for 10 years at Marketplace. Some of the following comments were posted on the Marketplace of Ideas blog (while it was still live), some were sent to me via LinkedIn, and others were emailed this way.
Very sad to learn about Marketplace. It's been a great pub for N.E.W. and a staple for business news coverage. It will be missed by me and others.
I'm really hoping this is just an elaborate April Fool's??? Will be sad to see Marketplace go otherwise!
This is an indescribable loss to the greater business dialogue so necessary in the Northeast Wisconsin region. ... Without a single doubt, I consider your intellectual, analytical, educational and persuasive skills to be the very best in this region. You remain the voice of reason, even in the competitive and declining world of ink on paper.
