New ULM Big Married to News-Star Reporter

W. Greg Leader, the newly minted Dean of the University of Louisiana at Monroe’s (ULM) School of Pharmacy, appears to be the husband of education reporter for The (Monroe) News-Star, Barbara Leader.

They share the same home address, according to a Yahoo! people search.

This brings to three the number of cases where key News-Star personnel have very close connections with government employees.

In our opinion, these facts should be disclosed on the editorial and news pages of this newspaper, so that readers can decide for whom the news articles and editorials are written.

One other tidbit of information surfaced during our investigation. It appears Greg Leader had been actively looking for employment elsewhere. In a letter dated October 30, 2009, he applied for the job of Dean of the School of Pharmacy at the University of Missouri – Kansas City.

    This article shows the extreme ignorance of your journalism staff. Dr. Leader had been serving as the temporary dean at the ULM College of pharmacy since January of 2009 and was just officially named the permanent dean of the ULM College of Pharmacy on March 23, 2010 the day before this ridiculousness was posted. Perhaps your journalism team should do a little more ACTUAL journalism before you post trash. Just to get you up to speed, Dr. Leader has passed away, and this trash should be removed from your website if you have ANY decency.
