Gregg Krupa Assigned To Another Department

Gregg Krupa tweets,

it breaks my heart to write that due a series of reductions to staff over the years, including now, i am told to report to the metro desk beginning the first week of february.

i worked there from 2000 to 2009, before beginning to cover #RedWings

it has been a great joy.

i had always hoped to expand my role.

now, it is eliminated.

i will particularly miss talking to the players and coaches, interacting with the fans and the different styles of sports writing.

i intend to continue to live tweet many wings games, from tv, and to blog.

Not many 'newspaper' guys respond to tweets, but Gregg does so drop him a note or leave a comment here. He will see it.

Personally I enjoyed his work and he will be missed.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
