I’m sure the takeover was peaceful
First they’ll take over Third Coast Daily Digest whatever, then the Crazy Shepherd, and then Milwaukee Magazine!
Urban Milwaukee president Jeramey Jannene said the company was excited about the acquisition. “Third Coast is a perfect complement to what we do, and will add an entertainment-oriented website to our daily news coverage. We’d like to salute John Shannon for his work to keep TCD going, as well that of its past editors like Tom Strini, Jon Anne Willow and Matthew Reddin. We aim to build on that legacy. Third Coast will continue as its own site, but under our direction.”
Urban Milwaukee’s publisher Dave Reid said that the publication’s editor Bruce Murphy will also serve as editor of Third Coast.
