Chris Krug, who oversaw a redesign of the Pioneer Press newspapers and triggered an exodus of dozens of reporters, editors and top managers, is on his way out after 10 months as vice president and publisher of the suburban weekly chain.

Rumors of Krug’s departure were confirmed at a staff meeting Tuesday when his resignation was announced, effective at the end of the year.
