off the record
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.
The Daily News parted ways with its longtime senior managing editor, Stuart Marques, on Friday, according to a well-placed tipster.
Mr. Marques was brought in to the News in 2007 by the previous editor, Martin Dunn, a British import and News Corp. veteran. Mr. Marques stuck around much longer than the other managing editor hired by Mr. Dunn, William Goldschlag, who was fired last September, weeks after current editor Kevin Convey’s takeover.
“We don’t comment on personnel matters,” said spokesperson Jennifer Mauer. Mr. Marques did not return a request for comment.
