Originator of News of the Weird passes away

It is with great sadness that we share the news of Chuck Shepherd’s death on Thursday, Sept. 8. Chuck was the originator of News of the Weird in 1988; he stopped writing the column in 2017. His great wit and eye for the “weird” made the column a huge success and a favorite among newspaper readers. Andrews McMeel Syndication is proud to have worked with Chuck for so many years.
