If there’s one thing Mike Goodman knows after more than four decades in the newspaper business, it’s that things don’t stay the same very long. Every day there’s something new.
Goodman’s four decades at The Daily Advance are certainly a testament to that. How the newspaper is produced, how it looks, where it’s printed, when and how it’s delivered to readers — all have changed significantly since he was first hired as a copyeditor at the paper in 1978.
And now Goodman — The Daily Advance’s editor for the past 37 years and its publisher the past five — is preparing for what will likely be the last change he’ll see at the paper. He announced recently to staff that he plans to retire at the end of August.
