Editor Out at In Touch

intouch 01 Editor Out at In TouchIn Touch editor-in-chief Richard Spencer left his post on Monday. The cause seemed to be salary negotiations–prosaic, yes, but Spencer staged the exit for maximum drama. Reports the Post‘s Keith Kelly:

In what was viewed as a demonstration of his pique, Spencer left mid-afternoon, when the magazine was in full deadline mode as it scrambled to close the issue that goes to print this week. . . .

Sources said there was no farewell address or even a memo, and that Spencer even abandoned his company-leased SUV in the company parking lot.


WWD says that executive editor Michelle Lee may succeed him.
