SEVERAL PALLADIUM ITEM EMPLOYEES, INCLUDING BILL ENGLE, TAKE BUY-OUT

(Richmond, IN)--Big changes are coming to the Palladium-Item.  Most notably, long-time reporter Bill Engle is leaving.  "I have taken an early retirement buy-out at the Palladium.  November 6 will be my last day," Engle said.  Several other employees have taken the buyout and are also leaving.  "Several of my fellow employees will be leaving October 30," Engle added.  For Engle, it ends just shy of 28 years of local coverage.  "The newspaper business has changed so much since I first got into it, and especially in the last five years.  Yeah, I think I'm about ready to go," Engle explained.  You can hear the extended version of Engle’s interview on 101.7 The Point’s podcast page.
