Sacramento News & Review founding editor Melinda Welsh is stepping down from her post and to help find a replacement, her staff has put together the "Top 10 Reasons to be Editor-in-Chief."
The article, "9/11 Blind," examines the Long War that has unfolded over the past ten years, resulting in the loss of thousands of lives and exacting a heavy toll on the U.S. economy.
Matt Coker, who came to Sacramento from the OC Weekly last Spring, was dismissed earlier this month, the Sacramento Bee reports. In addition, the paper's arts editor, Jonathan Kiefer, has resigned. News & Review CEO Jeff von Kaenel tells the Bee that Melinda Welsh will serve as interim editor until a permanent replacement is found. "(Melinda and I) have worked together for 20 years and we'll continue to make sure we're putting out a great paper," he says.
