Detroit Mayor's New Spokesman Is Freep Striker p.11

By: Mark Fitzgerald DETROIT MAYOR DENNIS Archer, who has frequently sided with strikers during his city's newspaper labor dispute, named a striking Detroit Free Press business reporter, Anthony Neely, as his new press secretary.
Neely, 36, worked at the Free Press from 1992 until the strike began last July 13. He previously worked at the Star Tribune of Minneapolis/St. Paul and the Wichita (Kan.) Eagle.
