And, The Staycation's Over for Tom Uhlenbrock, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Longtime Travel Writer

Posted By on Thu, Feb 4, 2010 at 7:45 AM

Blast off!
  • Blast off!
Well that didn't last long. St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter Tom Uhlenbrock resigned yesterday.

Uhlenbrock, who joined the paper in 1987, had spent a decade penning travelogues but got reassigned to the metro staff about two weeks ago. Instead of spinning tales from far-flung fun-lands, he was supposed to get the nitty-gritty on local universities. P-D editor Arnie Robbins told Daily RFT's Chad Garrison that the metro desk needed more "firepower."

Uhlenbrock's last day on the higher-ed beat will be Friday. A blast-off, sure, but probably not the one the newspaper was envisioning.
