Jeff Koterba laid off from the Omaha World Herald

Editorial cartoonist Jeff Koterba announced on Facebook today that he was laid off trom the Omaha World Herald after 31 years of daily cartoons at his hometown newspaper.

It is with deep and profound sadness that I must tell you that today, after over 31 years of drawing daily cartoons for my beloved hometown newspaper, The Omaha-World-Herald, my job was eliminated due to cost-cutting measures. 
I am grateful to the many wonderful colleagues with whom I have worked these many years—fellow hardworking journalists who have taught me a great deal. 
But more than anything, I am forever indebted to you, my dear friends and readers, for your support and kindness during my career. 
I’m honestly still in shock and will certainly share more about future plans down the road. But for now, I’m just grateful for the many wonderful humans in my life.
I am blessed.

  1. Jeff -- I remember you from your time with the Gateway. Sorry, for the paper's decision to cut back. Hope it had nothing to do with the insight found in your last cartoon. Keep making a difference.
