Houston Chronicle legal journalist Mary Flood moves on

Houston Chronicle legal journalist and lawyer Mary Flood is leaving the newspaper.

"It's bittersweet for me to end my 10 years at the Houston Chronicle," Flood told the mikemcguff.com blog. "This time, especially the five years on Enron stories, has been exhilarating and exhausting. I am sad to leave so many capable and wonderful colleagues at the paper."

Flood will be joining Androvett Legal Media's Houston office. In this role, she joins other former journalists and another lawyer to provide public relations, marketing, advertising and crisis communications to lawyers and law firms.

Although she is leaving the newspaper life, Flood tells me she hopes the industry finds a way to survive the digital age.

"Having worked in Houston at the Houston Chronicle, the Wall Street Journal, at the now-defunct Houston Post and briefly at the Houston Press, I want nothing but the best for newspapers here, in whatever forms their future takes us," Flood said.

We wish Flood great continued success in the future.

Flood's last day at the Houston Chronicle is June 25th. In the meantime, here is a link to Flood's Chronicle blog.

    Mary Flood is one of the best in the news business.
    What a loss for local journalism and the Chron.
