Aschburner to leave Star Tribune

Along with 23 other employees, Star Tribune beat writer Steve Aschburner accepted a voluntary buyout from the newspaper that was "triggered" by its recent sale.

Aschburner covered the Timberwolves for paper and is also the president of the Professional Basketball Writers Association.

Minnesota Monitor has the email the Strib sent out explaining the buyouts as well as a list of the other employees leaving the paper.
