Gary Piña leaves The Dallas Morning News for TheBlaze

Gary PiñaLongtime editor and page designer Gary Piña has left The Dallas Morning News to join conservative online news platform TheBlaze.com as a copy editor.

Today is his first day in the new job.

Piña had been at the Morning News almost three years, exiting the company as a Metro Print Team Designer.

“The Dallas Morning News recently announced that is outsourcing the design work to Gatehouse Media and trimming the newspaper’s print teams. I didn’t wait to find out if I made the cut.

Instead, I sent out résumés and was fortunate to get hired on as a copy editor at theBlaze.com in Irving, Texas,” Piña tells Media Moves. “I look forward to this new opportunity and challenge, but I know that I will miss the newspaper world. Newspaper has been my life.”

Piña spent over 20 years a news editor and page designer at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, until he was laid off in 2008.

Piña is a lifetime member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists and Hispanic Communicators DFW.
