A flurry of major changes in editors’ positions descended suddenly last week.
On Thursday, Glenn Guzzo revealed he would leave his position as editor of The Denver Post in 30 days. Guzzo said he had come to a mutual agreement with Publisher William Dean Singleton over his resignation. “We had a frank conversation about my future at the Post, and it became clear that this was the way to go,” Guzzo, 51, told E&P.
Singleton offered similar comments in Friday’s Post, saying, “We spent several months determining whether we could be in the same car, and we both decided that maybe we shouldn’t be.”
Late Friday, E&P confirmed that Singleton would name Boston Globe Managing Editor Gregory L. Moore as the new editor. With Moore’s appointment, the Post will become the highest-circulation daily newspaper in the United States with an African-American editor.
Also on Thursday, Joycelyn Winnecke and Bill Adee — who are husband and wife — announced that they would leave editing jobs at the Chicago Sun-Times to take similar posts at the Chicago Tribune.
Winnecke, the Sun-Times managing editor, will become associate managing editor for national news at the Tribune, while her husband, Adee, who spent nine years as Sun-Times sports editor, will take the job of Tribune sports editor.
Finally, Stephen P. Engelberg, investigative editor of The New York Times, revealed Wednesday that he would become managing editor for enterprise at The Oregonian in Portland. The move comes after an 18-year career for Engelberg at the Times, which included participation in recent terrorism coverage that won a Pulitzer Prize for the paper last month.
