According to NetNewsCheck.com, J.R. Mahon, who has led U-T San Diego's $3.5 million, 24-hour live streaming video network since its inception in May 2012, is out.

U-T Chief Executive John Lynch told NetNewsCheck that Mahon would have a consulting job as the paper seeks to build a national video network. Mahon is "just not overseeing the newsroom and [is] focusing on starting to talk with other papers," Lynch told the publication.

U-T Editor Jeff Light has taken charge of both the video and newspaper sides, Lynch said. The video network has often been an object of derision -- as has the newspaper side.

David Crossley: Oh yes, and the company says it is taking it national, even though it has flopped so far in San Diego. Roger Hedgecock is one of the stars, among other so-called personalities. Best, Don Bauder

I am really curious what the rank-and-file remaining at the U-T think about the attempt of dominating the airwaves, while they work for an incredibly shrinking newspaper.

aardvark: But the top echelon doesn't give a hoot about the rank and file. Best, Don Bauder

Most San Diegans cannot watch UT-TV because the largest cable providers don't carry it. Lynch has hit upon a business model that will force CBS and ABC out of business in five years. Lynch will become the William Paley of the internet and a billionaire to boot. Roger Hedgecock will become the new Eric Sevareid. Many have said it can't be done, but Lynch will prove them wrong. A man of Lynch's intellect is unstoppable.

Our worst nightmare coming true....say it ain't so Burwell.

Burwell: It was a superb piece of satirical comment. Congratulations. Best, Don Bauder

JustWondering: I am sure Burwell will confirm that it ain't so. Best, Don Bauder

"A man of Lynch's intellect is unstoppable." Best laugh I've had for awhile.
