In an email interview with Poynter, M.L. Elrick, vice chair of the Free Press unit of the Detroit Guild, says he's worried about the talent the paper will lose in its next round of buyouts. On Monday, management offered buyouts to 155 workers at the Free Press, the Detroit News and the Detroit Media Partnership. "While I applaud the company for finding a humane, even generous, plan to reduce costs, I dread thinking of the experience and institutional knowledge that we will lose. I am also concerned that those who remember what the Free Press once was — a dynamic newspaper with a landmark building, bureaus all over the world, scintillating columnists and page after page stuffed with fun and fascinating stories and features — are disappearing," Elrick said.
