Advocate Hires 4 Times-Pic Journos
With John Georges installed at the top and two former Times-Picayune brass running day-to-day operations, The Advocate newspaper appears to be staffing up. At least initially, Editor Peter Kovacs and GM Dan Shea are looking no further than their old staff at the T-P. Today, the Baton Rouge-based paper said it hired a pair of nola.com editors and two reporters that currently work at NOLA Media Group.
Georges, Ink: NOLA Businessman Seals Deal for The Advocate
On the same day the NOLA Media Group announced plans to once again print a newspaper all week, the paper from up the I-10 that showed up on the T-P's turf in the fall is also making its own news.

Makin' Groceries with the Muses
Sneak Peek at the Krewe's 2013 Parade
This past year has been a busy one for the city of New Orleans' hot button, from the bounty scandal to the end of the 7-day Times Picayune to Entergy keeping the city in the dark. New Orleans has always been the city known for its partying ways and unfortunately scandalous behavior. As always, the Krewe of Muses has found a way to take the sting out of the scandal. NoDef got a peek at this year's theme, and some of the floats that will cart down the route.
The Times-Picayune's Final Daily Edition
Following through on plans announced in the spring, The Times-Picayune ended its 175-year run as a daily newspaper today. Sunday's edition was the final print paper that will be distributed on the seven-days-a-week printing schedule. The front page of today's paper marks the day with a note to readers promising the new editions will have "substantial content and heft."

Red Stick Stand: Times-Picayune Puts Down Flag in Advocate Hometown of Baton Rouge
Local newspapers are getting more digitally focused these days, but that isn't stopping turf wars. In the wake of the Times-Picayune's move to three days a week, the The Advocate of Baton Rouge stepped into New Orleans and said they would fill the everyday void with a Crescent City edition. But apparently that didn't sit too well with NOLA Media Group brass. Today, the T-P's new parent company said they would make a similar move on The Advocate's home soil up in Red Stick.

The Advocate: New Orleans Edition Coming October 1
by Erica Boni
The Times-Picayune may be going to three days a week at the end of the month. But just as we lose it, New Orleanians will regain the option of reading the news the old fashioned way - in a newspaper, every single day. And there will even be some familiar names for those who subscribe. In a public letter sent to New Orleans readers late Wednesday, David Manship, the publisher of Baton Rouge’s daily newspaper, The Advocate introduced the paper's strategy for filling in the gaps left by the Times Picayune’s recent restructuring.
