Post-Dispatch Columnist Sylvester Brown To Say Farewell?!



St. Louis Post-Dispatch columnist Sylvester Brown's byline has been noticeably absent from the local daily for the past two weeks.

What gives?

Brown, the black face of the P-D, tells me he's hosting a press conference at 5 p.m. today to say farewell to his readers and colleagues.

If it's not raining, the press conference will be held outside the P-D headquarters building at 900 North Tucker Boulevard. In the case of rain, Brown will hold the meeting at the Gateway Classic building at 2012 Dr. Martin Luther King Drive. 

Brown is keeping mum on the specifics for the moment, though I will have more details to release here at Daily RFT just after five o'clock tonight. Check back later.
