Welcome Another MSMer to the Blogosphere

Ron Franscell is Managing Editor for Features, Sports and Presentation at the Beaumont Enterprise, a 60,000 circulation daily in the Lone Star State. He's also a published author, with two books to his credit, "Angel Fire" and "The Deadline." The latter, by the way, is about the one thing most newsroom reporters are incapable of comprehending after 6:00 p.m. I know that for an unimpeachable fact, having been a managing editor myself at two newspapers.

But I digress.

Now Ron has taken the plunge into the Blogosphere and is the chief proprietor of Under The News, to which he adds this interesting subtitle: "A blog from inside the newsroom of a daily newspaper somewhere in America ... and any place else I happen to go."

He must be a prudent fellow because he cautions that "all views expressed here, whether accidentally defensible, eloquently posited or sublimely ludicrous, are the author's alone."

Lots of potential here. You should check it out.
