Daily News Photo Editor Resigns [Updated]

The Daily News has lost another high-ranking staffer in the masthead makeover leading up to print-digital integration.

Managing editor for photo Gretchen Viehmann has resigned, according to two News sources. She will remain at the News until the end of November.

The shake-up began when senior managing editor Stuart Marques was fired last month. Shortly thereafter, a memo announced that senior editor for convergence Adam Berkowitz, senior executive editor Robert Sapio and executive digital editor Scott Cohen had been “promoted” to managing editor, leaving the existing managing editors wondering what their role would be.

Meanwhile, longtime  Newser and editorial page editor Arthur Browne has taken over Mr. Marques duties as well. Because double dipping in editorial and news is verboten at most papers, many at the News think it’s only a matter of time before he’s running the show.
