Well, more like shaker-upper if you want to get technical about it.
The feisty local tabloid has a new host for Press Party, its weekly media-review webcast, along with a streamlined panel.
The musical chairs featured former Press Party multimedia reporter Katie Eastman taking over the host’s role, while former host (and Herald columnist) Joe Battenfeld moves over to the panel.
(That’s Herald reporter Hillary Chabot and Suffolk University’s Bob Rosenthal in the other two chairs. The fifth chair from previous webcasts is, well, unendowed.)
As for the content of the webcast, we’ll leave that to the hardreading staff at Campaign Outsider.
Meanwhile, in other Herald web news, a splendid reader of Two-Daily Town sent this today:

Said radio page:
The rumor mill also has Battenfeld taking over the vacated 6 to 9 slot.
