Chicago Tribune Hires Staff Editorial Cartoonist

Scott Stantis to Fill Premier Position Left Vacant for Nearly a Decade

NEW YORK — The Chicago Tribune has hired Scott Stantis as its new staff editorial
cartoonist, filling the vacancy left by the death of Jeff MacNelly in 2000.

The Tribune’s hiring of Stantis reflects the paper’s renewed commitment to
return to its roots as a "crusading newspaper," which it believes
readers want and will lead to increased profitability.

Stantis, staff editorial cartoonist for The Birmingham (AL) News and the creator
of the syndicated comic strip "Prickly City," is a member and former
President of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists (AAEC).


The mission of the AAEC is to champion and defend editorial cartooning and free speech as essential to liberty in the United States and throughout the world.

The AAEC aims to be an international leader in support of the human, civil, and artistic rights of editorial cartoonists around the world, and to stand with other international groups in support of the profession.
