Luke Russert leaving news business; no clear plans

Postby Marie » Thu Jul 14, 2016 11:58 am

Explains that all he's been doing, since leaving college, was working, and never had a chance to take a real look around. Colleagues agree he's worked his butt off.

I'm going to miss him. :-(

He just announced it today --

Very self aware to come to that conclusion. Good for him. I hope he finds his way back to news; he's genetically pretty good at it. =D>

I agree on both counts! As w/ Katy, journalism is in Luke's DNA and he has come along beautifully in his field. At the same time, if he wants to settle down and start a family and/or take up a different occupation, this would be a good time to take the first steps.
