Last evening I posted Despite Duke endowment's $1B hit, Steel & Brodhead "very, very" positive. It includes a link to yesterday’s Triangle Business Journal story headed:
Duke endowment suffers $1B hitDoesn’t that sound like a story media in the Duke/Durham area would pick on?
But I could find nothing about Duke’s huge endowment loss in today’s print editions of the Durham Herald Sun or the Raleigh News & Observer.
I also visited the Web sites of WTVD and WRAL. Nothing about the endowment loss at either site.
I read trough the list of news stories at both stations through Dec. 6, the day before Duke’s trustees began their most recent quarterly meetings. No headline suggested a story reporting the $1B loss.
I also found nothing concerning the loss when I searched the H-S and N&O achieves.
If I’ve missed something, please let me know.
The hit Duke’s endowment’s taken is an enormously important story not only for Duke and Durham, but for our entire Triangle region.
Hat tip: Ed in NY who called my attention to the TBJ story.
