Long-time CHICAGO SUN-TIMES radio columnist ROBERT FEDER is taking a buyout and leaving the paper as part of staff cutbacks at the embattled tabloid. FEDER announced the pending departure in TODAY's column.
"The more I thought about it," writes FEDER, "the more I came to see it as a great opportunity. After devoting all of my energy to covering the same beat for 28 years, I'll be able to take a break, step back and think about what else I want to do.
"Maybe I'll continue in journalism or maybe I'll pursue something completely different. I have no idea what's next. But I'm excited about having the luxury to take my time and see what's out there."
