Two more familiar bylines will soon be disappearing from the Chronicle due to Hearst's plans to eliminate 100 of the paper's 400 newsroom positions. Foreign and national correspondent Anna Badkhen — who reported from the front lines of Iraq, Kashmir, Chechnya and New Orleans after Katrina — is headed to the Boston Globe. Also leaving is Patrick Hoge, who wrote about the homeless among other topics. He is a 19 year veternan of the Chron. A Sfgate.com page provides bios of Badkhen, Hoge and others who are leaving the Chronicle.
