Beaupre Fills In At Pennsylvania Newspapers
Lawrence K. Beaupre is finding consulting work since the botched
Chiquita Brands International series ended his editing career
with Gannett Co. Inc.
Beaupre is filling in as interim managing editor for The
Scranton (Pa.) Times and The Tribune while
helping seek a permanent replacement. He was fired last spring by
Gannett after he sued the company, alleging he was hung out to
dry for the 1998 Chiquita stories in The Cincinnati
Beaupre misses being at a metro paper, but acknowledges his
editing career may be over. “It’s not a steady paycheck,” he said
of consulting, adding, “It’s fun to do, and I’m enjoying it.”
