Gene Padden leaving NEPA for the Navy

Diamond City editor and former Weekender reporter (among other media gigs) Gene Padden is leaving the top job at Diamond City to become an intelligence officer for the Navy, Padden writes in his farewell column. "I won't be allowed to talk about my job, ever," he writes. Noted.
No word if he will be replaced or if DC will run as a subsidiary of Electric City.

Are they preparing for an invasion on the Susquehanna?

Yo assholes at least he has enough sense to get out of NEPA. I worked with him and you guys are just jealous because he makes a whole hell of a lot more than you do. Shit people at the Weekender make more than most reporters in either the TL or CV newsrooms. Bet you didn't know that. That sucks huh. hehehehehehehe

Anonymous said...

He HAD to get out of NEPA. He was on the ropes at Times Shamrock and had already burned his bridges big time at the Times Leader. What, did you think he would join WBRE with his pathetic weekend reports?Terrible, terrible, terrible is the only way to describe his TV performance. His military gig is a pathetic version of joining the French Foreigh Legion.

I worked in the accounting office and in the early 2000s at the TL even the weekender sales coordinator was making more than the 5 year salary for a reporter. Gene was an editor. He made more than most reporters except for the lynotts who have been there for years. Management just didn't want you to know that. I now work for a small family company but I wanted to set the record straight. Reporters are usually the worst paid at a paper.

Anonymous said...

My favorite part of his farewell..."being a prominent face in the local arts/entertainment scene comes with a shelf life, and for me, having lived this job 24-7 for years, that's enough. I did radio. I did TV every week. Trust me - I'm as sick of myself as you are."

No-o-o...I don't think that's entirely true. Talk about delusional.

He ran what amounts to the school paper, in essence another TS vehicle in which to paste ads. Three backpage massage ads pretty much brought it up to breaking even every week. If he was making a decent buck he wouldn't be going anywhere but as it stands now he's decided to go off and "play army (or in his case Navy)" and I think 1:05 hit it.

As far as 2:10's insider revelation goes, maybe I'm not following as closely as I should but who are the Lynotts?

My prediction? They'll let him out due to compatibility issues and he'll be back looking to regain his once-prominent facial status in the arts/entertainment scene by this time next year.

What pap. Did you actually read his "final column?" Like the Navy's just been waiting for him to free himself up so they can give him his top-level clearance and get on with the business of protecting our nation from evil.

The best line? Had to be "I have always considered my years of publishing free weekly newspapers to be a community service, so the Navy's core values of honor, courage, and commitment really aren't anything new for me." Yeah Gene, putting out a rag with pictures of bands and karaoke night drunks at local watering holes in it...almost exactly the same thing as serving in the military. Looks like you have a pretty good handle on things going in. Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

Everyone knows that Padden was on lockdown in a little office at the CV working with no one because of his personality disorder. Even the receptionists hate him. Every freelance writer/photographer working for him refers to him as "The little Dick Wad" and newsrooms from the TL,CV and TT all think he's a joke.
That ad was written by Padden to give himself the ultimate pat on the back. No one's going to miss you, bub.

Worked with him at the Weekender. He really was the meanest, lowlife EVER! And he HATES women!! He really was a monster when it came to our editor, Kristi Grier. He shoved so many knives in her back, bad-mouthed her to the entire staff and even tried to get upper management to fire her. Guess what? She's still there and he was eventually squeezed out. Good riddance he's leaving. NEPA will be a better place.

Never worked with Gene. Barely know Gene. He always seemed like a tool. Am out of NEPA. I will write this: The guy gets credit for having the stones to sign up for full-time active duty military. Regardless of how much of a prick/imbecile/ass he is, I am impressed that he's taking the step he's taking. It's a giant leap for guys in their late 20s and early 30s, to toss away a comfortable career sitting behind a desk for the possibility of, yes, driving trucks in Iraq.

Good for him.

I'd rather drive a truck in Iraq, too, than work with these NEPA jerks.

Gene and Tom Orbutz near ran The Weekender into the ground. They gave away ads, filled it with crap articles and destroyed what those before them had built. Afterward, they were handed their asses by Walzer and McHugh. Orbutz ended up in charge of the TL's car shopper and Gene was demoted to writer/layout boy. They both fled to Allentown's Pulse but that sagging rag couldn't support Padden so he high-tailed it home. Don't know what they were thinking when they hired him at Times Shamrock. One paper's garbage is another's treasure I guess.

I work at The Morning Call (a former TL alum) and Pulse Weekly just drove our weekly, Merge, out of business. Pulse drives management nuts here. I don't know Orbutz but even some of us at the Call read his paper to find out what's going on.

to 11:48 obviously you aren't in management since you don't know the whole story. The bottom line is Walzer didn't like anyone who left the newsroom and McHugh didn't like anyone who worked for Manzi.

I don't know how it works at the present time but it wasn't too long ago that signing up for any branch of the military guaranteed you only the training of your choice, not necessarily the job. If you did well and they needed someone with that training at the time you'd completed it you'd end up with the job you trained for. But if your performance in training was not so great...if there was even one guy who did better than you and they only had one position to fill well "No one can take that training away from you. Here's a mop." Now I know it's probably different when you sign up and already have a degree. Most likely you get a nicer mop.

I am now out of journalism but as an owner of my own business I would NEVER hire a former reporter. If they have that on their resume it gets tossed. Now you know why. Just look at this board. The ones posting are the lowlife reporters who have NO control over their jobs. They are told what to do like the BITCHES they are. Grow up, stop attacking everyone who has bettered themselves and move the fuck on, right out of NEPA. We don't need or want you here.

I don't recall any in the time I've lived here, especially one that lasted with good, hard content.

HOWEVER: We have all the makings of it right here in College NEPA. Just in my experience at King's, which has to extend to the other colleges, there are people who can report and write intelligently on whatever the alt wants to cover.

The students need real-world experience and college credits; they will be writing on subjects they are interested in. Co-op with a school in Philly and/or Binghamton (for credit or just portfolio).

Do articles worth reading, but not so long that people drop out halfway through. Ask yourself, "Do our readers give a **** about this?" Or, "Is this something people don't know about that they should be told?"

The CV or TL can print it easily enough; they (at least the CV, my only experience) do enough work for burgs throughout the Poconos.

Hire an editor for reasonably good pay, walk a few mock-ups around town to potential advertisers.

This area (NEPA) needs an alt. I think it can support one, but it has to be good: solid subjects, well-written, well-edited, clear view of its purpose.

Father Tom,

Your idea on having local college kids write stories for an alternative weekly, that will never happen at TS's Electric City, which also pretends to pawn itself as Diamond City.
The managing editor at the CV doesn't believe the local colleges have very good communication/journalism programs. It's true, he told this to us at the CV during a daily - and wasteful - standup meeting.

Anonymous said...

An alt in NEPA would make no money. That's why there's the Weekender and EC/DC. Kids read them. Besides kids today don't want to read boring, long, well thought out articles. That's why the biz is in the trouble it is today.

Anonymous said...

The fact of the matter is none of the local colleges teach journalism well. That's because they focus too much on theory and not on the nuts and bolts. I can't tell you how many times I've seen local grads come into a newsroom and have no idea about A.P. Style or how to spell. Your major programs such as Syracuse, Missouri and Penn State drill those things into kids' heads before they graduate. But it's lost on the local schools.

Granted, the local colleges aren't Columbia or Syracuse when it comes to journalism. But now and again, they do produce graduates who can actually think, which in the long run is more important than the so-called "nuts and bolts" stuff. You can teach a kid out of the U of S to open a stylebook in his or her first hour on the job, and they'll figure out how to use it. And trust me, graduates of the "big-time" J-schools are not better spellers than anybody else.

This blog should be copied and put in a leather bound collectors book and presented to Padden in a show mobile ceremony in front of whistles.

Good luck Gene you deserve it. Don't let these idiots get you down.

They're just jealous that their stuck in a dead end job and are too stupid to better themselves. God speed.
