The Tulsa World has hired Bruce Plante as its new editorial cartoonist. Plante replaces Doug Marlette, the award-winning cartoonist and writer who was killed in a traffic accident in July.
Plante, 53, comes to the World from the Chattanooga Times Free Press in Tennessee. Plante has also worked for the Arkansas Democrat in Little Rock, the Potomac News in Virginia, and the Fayetteville Times in North Carolina.
Plante's first World cartoon appeared in Sunday's edition. Plante's website can be found by clicking here.
