Annie Hundley arrived just last summer to run valleynews.com, the citizen journalism part of the Daily News website. Not any more, says this staff email from editor Ron Kaye:
I'm very saddened to announce that Annie Hundley who came out of nowhere to help us launce [sic] valleynews.com has decided to pack up her husband, dog and belongings and go home to Oregon and try to find an alternative to journalism. Personally, I think she'll find the weather lousy and there is no alternative to journalism since all the other jobs have moved offshore to India and China.
Still, I owe Annie a debt of gratitude for bringing her citizen journalism expertise here from Denver last summer and for all the hard work she's done. I wish her the best.
This follows on yesterday's memo about a new bout of reinvention at the Daily News.
