Rob Rogers' Cartoons To Appear In New Pittsburgh Publication

Jun 22, 2018

A former Pittsburgh Post-Gazette editorial cartoonist who says he was fired because of his anti-Donald Trump drawings has found a new home for his work in Pittsburgh.

A new alternative weekly, the Pittsburgh Current, said Thursday it had reached an agreement with Rob Rogers' syndication group to begin running his cartoons.

Rogers had worked for the Post-Gazette for 25 years before he was fired in mid-June after the paper had rejected many of his cartoons or ideas for cartoons in recent months.

The newspaper's leaders have said the dispute stemmed from a disagreement over the editing process. The paper's newly appointed editorial director said Rogers wanted to be "sole arbiter" of his work.
