Richard Hart Is New Independent Weekly Editor

Comes to alt-weekly from the Nando

Richard Hart, Durham editor of the Raleigh News & Observer, will be the new editor of Independent Weekly, Publisher Sioux Watson says.

Hart will start work mid-June and thus have a two-week overlap with David Madison before he returns to Montana to rejoin his wife, Katie.

Madison had been editor of Independent Weekly since October 2001.

“We think Richard will be an excellent match for the paper,” Watson says. “He has lived all over the Triangle, and knows the local issues in depth.”
