Joe Torre's out of NY...
And John V. Smith is leaving too
Joe Torre wouldn't stay for 5 mil. So John V. Smith is out too. (Rumors hint at some sorta package deal.)
John V. Smith is leaving his Newsday sports design position of 2.5 years to become the Assistant Sports Editor at the Asbury Park Press. "My wife, Alison Kistler Smith, will be the Assistant Night Editor. She's currently at TV Guide."
When asked for comment about Smith's move back to his old haunt (he had been the sports designer at the APP for four years earlier in his career), ME for Everything, Harris Siegel sent an email with the lyrics to Bon Jovi's "Who Says You Can't Go Home?."
Who says you can't go home
There's only one place they call me one of their own
Just a hometown boy, born a rolling stone, who says you can't go home
Who says you can't go back, been all around the world and as a matter of fact
There's only one place left I want to go, who says you can't go home
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, its alright
