    Isn't there still a relationship between Dawg Nation and the AJC? If so won't we still get Chip here at Dawg Nation?

    There must be something different between the two jobs. Chip Towers dawgnation twitter account has been deleted and it is now Chip Towers AJC.

    Is Chip replacing anyone there at AJC?

  • GeoffDawgGeoffDawg Posts: 1,272 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Yeah, I'm not clear on the differentiation between the two sites. I thought Dawgnation was essentially under the AJC umbrella?

    My guess is that while both are under same umbrella, it is a different style of work. AJC is more long form newspaper stuff and a lot of it their team articles require a subscription. Dawg nation is web/blog style with one good story often broken up into multiple parts to generate clicks and feed the beast of constant new content around the clock as well as pay for the free-to-the-consumer content. Chip does better with the opinion and longer form stuff, and I’m guessing he’s going back to a more familiar territory.

    Cox Media Group owns AJC, DawgNation operates under the Cox’s media/AJC banner

    I hope this new gig comes with a new proofreader thrown in.

    (Sorry Chip, I couldn't resist)

    Well, The Athletic appears to only employ one beat writer per college team, and Seth Emerson seems to have that position filled quite well. They just announced a bunch of new hires, including Andy Staples.

    Chip will be posting here under the new name, @Jackiemoon. It would seem that Cox would share the talent, but Chip may want to focus on his new role. I liked him and his reporting. He is a Dawg and a good reporter.

    Ive said it before, Chip is old school. Not that he can’t churn out content with a non traditional deadline but I doubt he enjoys it..let alone having to read people ripping him on here lol.

    Good luck Chip but don’t be a stranger.

    And Brandon the “gator hater” Adams!!!

  • TomGroseTomGrose Posts: 216 ✭✭✭ Junior

    I wish Adams would display as much vitriol for Auburn, who we've played more than anyone else in our history and which is a disgusting, vile football program

  • TomGroseTomGrose Posts: 216 ✭✭✭ Junior

    Has Dawgnation put out a statement about Chip Towers leaving for The AJC and his future interaction with this site?

    I liked his video chats. I appreciated the opportunity to ask him questions and hear his opinions via direct responses.

    @TomGrose I don't think it's on site, but it's somewhere in this thread
