Mortimer B. Zuckerman, publisher of New York’s Daily News, informed staff in an Aug. 13 memo that William D. Holiber will replace Marc Z. Kramer as the paper’s CEO.
Holiber adds the Daily News to his duties as chief executive of Zuckerman’s other publication, U.S. News & World Report, according to the Associated Press.
Kramer, who had been chief executive since 2006, was leaving to explore “other opportunities,” according to the memo. Zuckerman thanked Kramer for his for his contributions to the paper, saying he’d “done a tremendous job.”
Kramer’s departure follows by only a few weeks the announcement that Editor Martin Dunn would leave to care for his ailing wife. Boston Herald Editor Kevin R. Convey was chosen to replace Dunn.
Both Kramer and Dunn were serving their second stints at the News – Dunn as editor in the 1990s and Kramer as a vice president handling labor relations, also in the1990s, before moving to The New York Times for several years.
Zuckerman hired Holiber as publisher of The Atlantic, then, upon selling the monthly, reassigned Holiber to U.S. News & World Report.
