The Daily News said goodbye to managing editor Robert Sapio on Friday, according to newsroom sources.
His departure marks the end of a 40-plus-year career at the News. Mr. Sapio first joined the tabloid as an advertising office boy in 1969. After moving to editorial, he rose from typist to copy editor, then to news editor and senior executive editor.
If the light dimmed yesterday and you heard ominous rumblings in the distance, it may have been due to news that could signal at least a temporary twilight over the Palin family ascendancy: Bristol went home to mama. Erstwhile veep candidate and ex Alaska governor Sarah Palin has a baby bird back at the roost and humbly working as a receptionist in a doctor’s office. The former teen mom recently told In Touch Weekly she had a revelation while in the desert (a bar) on the back of a (mechanical) bull that some people might disagree with her mother’s political views.
The bad news keeps coming at the New York Daily News. Another two staffers have been let go, and the rumor is that there are more to come.
