Newsweek Fires Top Two Editors And Two Senior Reporters After They Published Stories About Its Parent Company
Written by broebling on February 9, 2018
Newsweek has fired its top two editors as well as two senior reporters. According to reports, Bob Roe, the editor-in-chief, and Kenneth Li, the executive editor, were both let go, along with senior politics writer Celeste Katz and senior writer Josh Saul. In the wake of the above events, the company’s chair and finance director both stepped down last week. Hours after the firings went public, the company announced in an internal staff email that cofounder Jonathan Davis would return as interim Chief Content Officer, and that Nancy Cooper, the managing editor of IBT, is now acting editor of Newsweek.
