Hartford Courant’s Top Two Editors Leaving Posts Tomorrow

leave a comment »

Hartfort Courant editor Cliff Teutsch and managing editor Bobbie Roessner are leaving the Hartford Courant effective tomorrow, according to Jim Romenesko. The move is an effort by management to re-organize the newspaper.

Teutsch told his staff in his own memo:

The editor’s job just doesn’t fit me anymore the way it needs to. Important work demands to be done here by an editor who is in synch with those above him. My best assessment is I’m not that editor. Jeff asked me to stick around for several weeks while we decided whether the fit was right; leaving now is my call.
