Alas, Dan is the latest in a long list of Journal news people over the past few years who’ve announced they’re leaving the paper. He’s off to join TDG Communications, Inc., an ad agency in Deadwood, where he'll be their Director of Public Relations, according to a piece last week in the Black Hills Pioneer.
As one would expect of a professional, Dan has no unkind words for the Journal. That speaks volumes about Dan, whose work has graced the pages of the Journal since 1990. In Deadwood, he'll likely cross paths with another Rapid City Journal escapee, Bill Harlan, who left the paper earlier this year to go to work at the Sanford Underground Science and Engineering Laboratory.
Since Karen and I retired and returned to South Dakota three years ago, we’ve enjoyed Dan’s “Talking Business” column, and I’ve also picked up a lot of background information and perspectives from the Daily Business Blog. We'll miss seeing his work in print and on-line.
Good luck, Dan Daly; best wishes in your new career with TDG Communications.
