The New York Post has reported that the three top editors at Newsday were fired in recent days, but a James T. Madore story in Newsday today does not confirm this. Their phones are still turned on and they are still listed on the masthead, he notes.
Here is an excerpt from Madore’s report.
Newsday’s ownership and top executives were mum yesterday after a report of a possible shakeup in the newspaper’s newsroom management.
Citing no sources, the New York Post speculated yesterday that Newsday’s top editor, John Mancini, and managing editors Deborah Henley and Debby Krenek may have been fired by parent Cablevision Systems Corp.
The Post said a rumor was circulating that Cablevision was angry about coverage of a sex harassment lawsuit filed against Eddy Curry of the New York Knicks; the team also is owned by Cablevision.
There have been few top executive changes at Newsday since its purchase last year by the Bethpage-based cable giant for $650 million.
