San Francisco Chronicle Editor Phil Bronstein announced today that Managing Editor Robert Rosenthal will be leaving after nearly five years at the newspaper.
In a note to the newsroom staff, Rosenthal said he was departing ?without rancor or acrimony.? He said he is not sure what he will be doing next but ?I hope to help another organization grow and another group of talented people find success.?
Just two weeks ago, the paper revealed a coming 25% reduction in newsroom staffing.
Rosenthal formerly edited the Philadelphia Inquirer.
?Rosey has provided The Chronicle ? and will continue to provide journalism — with the highest level of integrity and of passion for our craft,? Bronstein said. ?There is no question that he embodies the greater traditions of news papering. He is leaving The Chronicle a better place than when he arrived because of his commitment and talent.?
