Idaho Statesman publisher Mi-Ai Parrish joins the growing alumni list of former staffers as she leaves town after only 5 years at the helm of the Idaho’s largest newspaper, heading for the Kansas City Star.
In a twist of irony, we note the Statesman’s old press came from the Star, now the Star gets the Statesman’s old publisher–who is only 40. Her arrival in KC got much bigger play than the departure story in Boise.
In a brief announcement the Statesman said:
Idaho Statesman Publisher Mi-Ai Parrish will leave the newspaper to become publisher of the Kansas City Star.
The McClatchy Co., which owns both newspapers, announced Parrish’s promotion Tuesday.
Parrish, 40, has led the Statesman since shortly after the McClatchy Co. acquired the Statesman in 2006.
McClatchy is searching for a replacement in the weeks to come.
The GUARDIAN will gladly forward the resume’ of any serious applicants free of charge.
