Here you go – where’s the name “Shine, Kristine – President” here at Newsroom Contacts?
Did somebody go in and simply delete Kristine’s entry within the past couple weeks and that’s why there’s a tell-tale glitch in the spacing betwixt entries?
It sure looks that way to me. WE’RE THROUGH THE LOOKING-GLASS, PEOPLE!*
Here’s the coding that should be in there:
<br /><p class=”email“><a href=”/web/20150713173819/http://www.sfchronicle.com/author/kristine-shine“>Shine, Kristine</a><br />President<br /><a href=”mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org“>email@example.com</a></p>
If only we could go back to see what the Newsroom Contacts page looked like a couple weeks ago.
Oh, here we go:
And this webpage here has been disappeared down the Memory Hole as well:
Here’s what that page said just a few days back:
“This is Google’s cache of http://www.sfchronicle.com/author/kristine-shine. It is a snapshot of the page as it appeared on Jul 17, 2015 11:47:36 GMT:
“About this Author: Kristine Shine is the president of the San Francisco Chronicle and SFGate.com, the Bay Area’s most-read sources of local and national news, reaching 22 million users around the world each month. Prior to this role, Shine served as chief revenue officer at PopSugar– a leading digital lifestyle brand for women. In her time at PopSugar, Shine also served as vice president of sales from 2008 to 2010, developing PopSugar’s go-to-market and sales strategy and delivering high double-digit revenue growth year after year. Prior to PopSugar, Shine served as vice president of sales at Spot Runner in 2008, and as director of sales for Microsoft from 2004 to 2008. Previously, she held online and print sales positions at BusinessWeek, and began her career in print advertising at Icon International.”
So, as stated, that’s evidence to support the recent rumors.
Oh what’s that, Gentle Reader – so what, you say?
All right, but news of her hiring last year was a BFD, right?
Hearst Corporation Names Kristine Shine President of San Francisco Chronicle
And then she birthed the NEW SFGate, right?
Welcome to the new SFGate!
And then, a friendly, BOLD ITALIC-style appeal to local bidness:
Join SFGate for #LoveLocalSF celebration
And now she’s gone?
Isn’t this news, sort of?
But no? No coverage at all?
Hey, didn’t troubled former Interim CEO Ellen Pao make the news when she left Reddit just recently? Seems like they had similar gigs – the turning of clicks into bucks.
Anyway, who knows what’s going on.
