Yet another job change for Massey

Former BJ reporter Delano Massey has been named Ohio news editor for The Associated Press.

Delano Massey
Massey, based in Cleveland, will work with AP journalists in Cleveland, Columbus, Toledo and Cincinnati.

Delano, 37, has bounced around a lot in his journalism career. He will join AP from WEWS, the ABC TV affiliate in Cleveland, where he was newsroom  digital director.

He came to WEWS from the Lexington Herald-Leader, where he was metro editor and where he was hired three times and laid off two times. He was barely at Ol’ Blue Walls long enough to unpack.

Delano went from the Herald-Leader to the BJ (for about a year, till 24 with 335 years of service went away in 2006), back to the News-Leader, as an investigative reporter, but was let go for about three weeks, then hired him back as metro editor. Then to WEWS. And now to AP.

Stay tuned for later job changes.

He had a BJ reunion in August at the joint convention of the National Association of Black Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists with former graphic artist Jemal R. Brinson, former reporter and columnist Carl C. Chancellor, former reporter Andale Gross and current BJ executive news editor Mark Turner.
