    Veteran sports columnist and one of paper’s top earners let go in new round of downsizing after owner Mort Zuckerman’s failed attempt to sell paper

    New York Daily News has begun a new round of layoffs that will send one of America’s premier sports columnists out the door.

    Mike Lupica, a legendary sports columnist and media personality, was not able to come to terms on a new contract with the paper, Politico reported. Sports editor Teri Thompson also got the ax.

    There’s no word on the number of layoffs, but they’ll be company-wide instead of restricted to the editorial staff.

    For Lupica, it’s a double whammy: He recently lost his ESPN Radio show in New York.

    Publisher Mort Zuckerman attempted to sell his paper over the summer but didn’t find an acceptable deal. Last week, editor-in-chief Colin Myler left the paper.

    Lupica jumped on the celebrity talking head circuit early. As his ego exploded, his writing suffered.

    Print newspapers are dying a slow yet inexorable death.

    ............The cutbacks come after Daily News owner Mort Zuckerman pulled the money-losing tabloid off the sale block last month after failing to get a single bid.

    The tabloid, which he picked up out of bankruptcy in 1993, is estimated to be losing close to $30 million a year..............

    I can't stand him.
    To me, he is the symbol for pencil necked geeks that never played the game but want to lord over MLB players, at the expense of their careers and the game.
    He is an insufferable twat

    Yeah I don't talk to people about the weather because I want to get in a deep conversation with them about their family problems.

    Howard-related because a washed up has been has been fired.

    But I'd love to see it become more directly Howard related.

    I sound like an old fart, but these kids killed the newspaper and more importantly journalism and the language. They are going to miss that down the road. Or maybe I just don't know what I am talking about...
