David Aldridge, the Inquirer's NBA scribe, is leaving the paper to focus on his television work. Here's the email sports editor Jim Cohen sent to his staff:
David Aldridge will be leaving The Inquirer after next week. As many of
you know, David has been juggling responsibilities for The Inquirer and
a television network for a number of years, and that has become
untenable for him. We will miss him for his reporting, maturity and
professionalism. As someone who has worked with David in newspapers and
television, I have always appreciated his dedication to doing
journalism the right way, regardless of the medium and of the industry
trends. At this time, David plans to devote his full attention to
television. We wish David and his family well.
D.A. is among the best in his business and his articles in the Inquirer will certainly be missed.
