April 3, 2013

There comes a point in every journalist’s career when he or she does something so hurtful that it warrants a public apology.
I think that it is safe to say that after Wednesday’s edition of the Daily Times Leader, I have reached that point.
In my nine months as Managing Editor of the DTL, I have had some major lapses in judgement, and I have made some mistakes.
Wednesday’s story, “Dead body found along highway” was the worst mistake of my career, by far.

Correction: Yeager to speak Thursday night

April 3, 2013

In Wednesday's edition of the Daily Times Leader, we reported correctly in the headline that Dr. Mark Yeager would be speaking on Thursday, but there were several times in the article where it said he would be speaking Wednesday evening.
That is not correct.
Dr. Yeager will speak at First Baptist Church on Thursday night at 5:30 p.m.
We apologize for the mistake.
