Just heard Conor O’Neill on The Adam Gold Show yesterday, and now today he is GONE from the Winston-Salem Journal…
He was the beat writer for the Wake Forest Demon Deacons, covering the Deacs for the Journal and for the News and Record, by way of the papers’ owner, Lee Enterprises…
Conor O’Neill came up through the ranks in the Triad…He used to be on staff with Bob Sutton and the crew, at the Burlington Times-News…
He did a great job over the years and he was experienced, but yet he still came across providing a young perspective….
The word on Conor O’Neill’s exit, by way of Twitter…..
Filed under personal news:
I’ve been laid off by the Journal. Can’t say I saw that coming.
It’s been a pleasure covering Wake Forest for the past three years.
What a compassionate bunch at the Journal and Lee Enterprises…

Plenty of mentors and friends made these past three years special in Winston-Salem. I can’t thank y’all enough for the support — and for reading along. pic.twitter.com/4l1oTJIQeD
