Newspaper Circulation, leadership and the Godbeat » GetReligion

The Get Religion blog has some excellent commentary from Arkansas Democrat-Gazette religion editor Frank Lockwood. This includes some interesting comparative circulation statistics.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported on a major change at the paper recently:

LITTLE ROCK — Arkansas Democrat-Gazette executive editor Griffin Smith announced Monday that he is leaving the post effective Tuesday.

Smith, speaking to the newsroom, said there was no single factor in his resignation, adding he knew it was the “right time.” In his address to several dozen employees in the paper’s downtown headquarters, Smith thanked the staff and publisher Walter Hussman.

“It’s been a tremendous privilege to work here with him and with all of you at this newspaper,” he said.

Hussman said the paper will not hire a new executive editor for the “foreseeable future.” Managing editor David Bailey will lead the newsroom.
