Hartsfield-Jackson in the news

The announced departure of Aviation General Manager Ben DeCosta on January 25 was the subject of widespread media coverage. Many stories listed some of the large-scale developments accomplished during DeCosta’s tenure, such as the fifth runway, the rental car center and the start of work on the Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal, which is set to open in spring 2012.

Among the media outlets reporting on DeCosta’s decision not to renew his contract were USA Today, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Global Atlanta, and journalist/blogger Maria Saporta’s SaportaReport. The story first appeared on WSB-TV Channel 2, where it led the 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. broadcasts on January 25.
