LEO Weekly editor Sarah Kelley has resigned rather than eliminate a staff position, reports Louisville NPR affiliate WFPL:
“Several weeks ago I was presented with the need to cut an editorial staff position,” Kelley says. “After thinking about it for several days I realized that’s not something I want to do. So I volunteered to be the person who left.”
LEO, a weekly publication, employs two staff writers, a music editor and a managing editor. Managing Editor Sara Havens will fill Kelley’s position in the interim. Publisher Dave Brennan hopes to fill the position permanently, but he says advertising revenue must improve first.
