Julie Doll has resigned as executive editor of the Journal & Courier of Lafayette after being in that position since 2004.
Doll’s last day at the newspaper was Wednesday. She joined the Journal & Courier as managing editor in 2002 and later replaced Ted Haider as its top editor.
Publisher Gary Suisman says he accepted Doll’s resignation with regret. He says Doll guided the newspaper through many changes, including its 2006 conversion to the smaller, more compact Berliner newspaper format.
Suisman says a search for a replacement has started.
Doll says she decided to leave the Gannett-owned paper because she didn’t believe her management philosophy fit it any more. She says she has no firm plans and is considering some personal writing projects.
