Late last year, Village Voice editor-in-chief Donald Forst resigned on the eve of the merger with New Times. Now, Voice publisher Judy Miszner steps down. Her farewell memo follows:
I am writing to let you know that today is my last day as Publisher of the Village Voice. I thank all of you for making these the 7 best years of my career. During this period we have faced incredible challenges: 9/11, blackouts, a transit strike, the proliferation of free dailies and the transformation of the internet into a major competitor. Through it all, you have shown unsurpassed loyalty and commitment to the Voice.
I am confident that a successful future lies ahead for you in the new organization and wish you the best of luck. I will miss you.
