More shakeup at the Star Tribune
Posted at 11:31 AM on February 16, 2007 by Melanie Sommer
The publisher of the Star Tribune newspaper in Minneapolis, Keith Moyer, is stepping down from that post next month, when the paper's new owners take over. Moyer says he's leaving to take a mid-career break, and that he was not asked to leave.
Moyer's decision comes just two days after the Strib announced its new editor, Nancy Barnes -- who is taking over for Anders Gyllenhall when he leaves for Miami.
Wow -- a new owner, a new publisher (akin to the CEO of a company), and a new editor -- all happening at the same time. That's a lot to deal with for any company, never mind one that operates so much in the public eye. It'll be interesting to see how things change -- or don't -- at the Strib.
