This is the last issue of ENTtoday of which I will be physician editor, and I’d like to take this opportunity to provide a little history, thank some individuals, and comment on the future.

The concept of ENTtoday arose from a publishing strategic planning meeting held at the Drake Hotel in Chicago during the summer of 2005. The concept was to produce a vehicle for pertinent news to practicing otolaryngologists, written by professional writers. One of my aims as physician editor was to expand the news beyond the small realm of otolaryngology–head and neck surgery to include relevant general medical news as well as national health policy issues.
Working with the then-publisher of The Laryngoscope, Lippincott Williams & Wilkins (LWW), the concept of a large format newspaper came to life with publication of the first issue in March 2006. In 2010, the Triological Society changed publishing partners to Wiley, and Wiley has been a great partner. New departments and features have been added, and some were deleted based on feedback from you, the readers. Along the way, our publishing team has received several awards and honors, which is most gratifying.
