Ann Telnaes Leaving Tribune Media


The Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Ann Telnaes will leave her current syndicate Tribune Media Services effective April 1. In a statement to Editor and Publisher, Telnaes bluntly indicated that efforts in sales were not up to her satisfaction. Telnaes signed with the Los Angeles Times Syndicate shortly before their acquisition by TMS. That deal began an extended period of friction in all facets of the Times' businesses as the new ownership arrangement settled into place. It looks that Telnaes was among those dissatisfied with how things turned out. According to the article, Telnaes continues her work with the King Features strip Six Chix and remains a contributor to Women's eNews.
