A new editor in Knoxville, 20 departures at National Post

Nov 30, 2016

Kyle Ocker will be the newest editor at the Knoxville Journal-Express.

Also: "A memo sent to National Post staff on November 18 by editor-in-chief Anne Marie Owens details 20 newsroom departures, most the result of a round of buyouts aimed at reducing salary costs at Postmedia by 20 percent."

"Today's buyouts at the National Post are sad," tweets Bruce Arthur of the Toronto Star, "and a reminder: what an innovative, creative paper. For all its flaws, will love it forever."
